Salford Red Devils sign New Zealand winger

NEW DEAL: Manu Vatuvei

SALFORD RED Devils have signed powerful New Zealand winger Manu Vatuvei on a deal until the end of the 2018 season, BBC Sport reports.

The 31-year-old was released from his contract with National Rugby League (NRL) side New Zealand Warriors in order to join the Super League club.

Vatuvei has scored 152 tries in 226 appearances for the Warriors and is rated one of the world's top wingers.

"Manu is a winner and has experience of high-pressure, big-game situations," Red Devils head coach Ian Watson said.

"He will be able to bring that experience into our existing playing group, which will be a massive benefit for our young squad.

"Just the fact a player of Manu's stature and experience wants to come over and play for Salford shows how far we have come as a team and as a club."
