Lussick follows brother’s footsteps

Salford Red Devils have announced the signing of former Toronto Wolfpack forward Darcy Lussick.

The forward has made over 100 NRL appearances and is the brother of Joey, who spent the last two years at Salford before recently signing for Parramatta Eels in the NRL.

The 31-year-old was already based in the UK, after joining the Wolfpack in 2018 and helping them earn promotion to the Super League.

He said: “I’m stoked to be joining Salford. My brother’s told me it’s a really family orientated club, where everyone’s close.

“I’ve lived in Salford for two years now. My house is two minutes from the ground and while I’ve been here, I’ve really noticed the city getting behind the Club. You go to the ground and you see how passionate the supporters are.

Head coach Richard Marshall added: “Darcy’s exactly the kind of dominant front-rower we talked about bringing into the squad when I arrived.

“He’ll offer us another big, physical presence in the middle and like Elijah (Taylor), he’s another player whose experience at the highest level will benefit some of our younger forwards.

“He’s an aggressive competitor, who I am looking forward to working with. He’ll also be fresh, as he hasn’t played for a year after representing Toronto.”
