Brodie Croft had a sensational first year in the Betfred Super League.
The running halfback devastated teams with his effectiveness in attack and guided Salford Red Devils to an unlikely place in the Super League play-offs.
He even helped them to the semi-finals and had he played against eventual Champions St Helens in the semis, perhaps he could have taken them to the final but he missed the game after failing his Head Injury Assessment the week before after a clash against Huddersfield Giants.
He was named in the Dream Team and claimed the Man of Steel Award.
After such an impressive season, he sparked interest from the NRL.
The former Brisbane Broncos and Melbourne Storm halfback was reportedly close to joining Newcastle Knights who eventually signed another former Salford halfback and ex-Wigan Warriors man Jackson Hastings to fill the void instead.
Croft would later underline his desire to stay at Salford when he collected the Man of Steel award.
However, if any Salford fans were still worried that the star halfback could leave for pastures new prior to the 2023, a hint from the club can have them sleeping easy.
Croft has agreed a sponsorship for the 2023 season with the Salford Red Devils seemingly cementing his place in their squad for next year and ending any lingering doubts over whether he will stay for the next campaign.
