Salford have added another signing to their growing squad for 2015, after confirming the signature of former Hull KR forward Cory Paterson.
The forward – who quit Rugby League at the end of the 2014 season to pursue a career in professional boxing – has been lured back to the game by the Red Devils, with the former Wests man signing a one-year deal with the club.

“It became apparent this week that Cory wanted not only to get back into rugby league but also that he really wanted to do so with us,” Salford owner Marwan Koukash said.
“The deal has moved very quickly and Cory will join us in January on a one-year deal with an option of a second. It is a great opportunity for both parties. Cory will come in and make our pack even stronger and for him it allows him the opportunity to continue to prove himself at the highest level.”
