Warrington sign Murdoch-Masila for big money

Salford Red Devils 30-10 Widnes Vikings

Warrington Wolves have confirmed the signing of Ben Murdoch-Masila from Salford Red Devils for £175,000.

The 26-year-old Tongan international has signed a three-year deal at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Murdoch-Masila was named in the Super League Dream Team last month and has been a standout for Salford since signing ahead of the 2016 season.

“It’s an honour to become a part of a club with such great history,” he told the Wolves website.

“I am really excited for what we as a club can achieve in the future. I am really looking forward to hooking up with Steve and the boys and getting stuck in for 2018.”

Warrington head coach, Steve Price, added: “Ben is a hell of a ball runner. He’s had a stand-out season this year at Salford earning him a place in the Dream Team.

“I have watched Ben grow with interest when playing back in the NRL to how he has transformed to today. I see a lot of upside in Ben as to what he can bring to the club and team, and we will look to guide him into becoming an even better player.”
