Salford land Josh Jones after rugby union exit

Salford Red Devils have completed the signing of Josh Jones after his release from rugby union side Exeter Chiefs.

Jones, who left St Helens at the end of the 2015 season to take up a deal in rugby union, left the Chiefs earlier this week for family reasons, and has now completed his switch back to the 13-man code with Salford.

He joins the likes of Craig Kopczak, Robert Lui and Justin Carney as one of the new faces at the AJ Bell Stadium ahead of the new season.

Owner Marwan Koukash tweeted:

Jones is likely to make his debut for the club against Wigan next week.
