Exclusive: Harvey Livett explains Warrington departure and speaks about Richard Marshall’s sacking

Harvey Livett quickly became one of the Salford Red Devils’ most important players in the 2021 Super League season after making the move from the Warrington Wolves.

The utility man had spent time on-loan at Hull KR in 2020, but took the opportunity to move closer to home after he knew the time was right to leave Warrington.

Livett made 47 appearances for the Wolves between 2017 and 2020, scoring 17 tries and kicking 39 goals, but he never nailed down a first-team spot – and it’s for that reason that the flame-haired forward decided to move.

“I wanted to move because of a lack of game time,” Livett told Serious About Rugby League.

“I’m getting a bit older now and want to focus on regularly making the first-team and I think my time was up and needed a new challenge.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity Salford have gave me.”

Unfortunately, Livett couldn’t help steer the Red Devils away from the bottom half of the Super League table, which ended up being the catalyst for Richard Marshall’s sacking.

But, the 24-year-old revealed that a number of issues coincided to eventually force the club’s hand.

“I just think it was a tough year for everyone last year, injuries hit us and also Covid took its toll on the squad.

“We just didn’t get the ball rolling and then the decision was made, but I wish Rich (Marshall) all the best.”

With the appointment of Paul Rowley as head coach, however, there is hope around the AJ Bell Stadium that 2022 could turn out to be a lot more fruitful.
