Kriss Brining leaves Salford

Salford Red Devils have confirmed that hooker Kriss Brining has left the club after a lengthy injury lay-off.

After a promising season in 2017 where he scored five tries in 24 appearances, Brining was unable to play in 2018 due to injury.

“It was an extremely tough decision to let Kriss go,” said Salford Red Devils Head Coach Ian Watson.

“Kriss was one of my first signings and I’d have loved to have continued our journey together. I’m still of the opinion that Kriss still has the potential to go far in the game.

“I’m hopeful that we can work together again in the future and this is something I’ve discussed with Kriss. Hopefully he gets his career back up and running but due to current circumstances, we were unable to offer Kriss a deal for next season.

“We already have three hookers signed up for the 2019 season and with Kriss still trying to overcome a long-term injury we came to the decision to let Kriss go which wasn’t easy for us.”

Meanwhile, Gaven Bennion has also left the Red Devils after two appearances in 2018 for the club.
