Salford Red Devils snap up Weller Hauraki

Salford Red Devils have signed Castleford Tigers back-rower Weller Hauraki for the 2015 season in another impressive coup from the Red Devils.

Hauraki, 29, who has been a key part of the Tigers’ impressive season so far, joins Ben Jones-Bishop for next term.

Red Devils coach Iestyn Harris, who will welcome fellow Kiwi star Kevin Locke to the club once his visa has been acquired, will also have winger Jones-Bishop arriving from Leeds.

“Iestyn has first-hand knowledge of Weller, so the minute his name was mentioned when he first got here, he jumped at the chance,” chief executive Martin Vickers said.

“He wants people who are proven in this game and Weller is certainly that.”

Vickers also confirmed that Castleford loanee Marc Sneyd will be back at Salford for 2015, after his growing reputation at Castleford following an excellent 2014.
