Off-contract star signs long-term deal with Super League rivals

Salford Red Devils have confirmed the signing of Esan Marsters on a two-year deal from Super League rivals, Huddersfield Giants. Marsters is out of contract with the Giants at the end of the season, and the club were keen to retain his services. 

However, Salford pulled off a significant coup to secure Marsters’ signing. He has been one of the in-form centres in the Super League and is a key part of Huddersfield’s first-team squad. Marsters has four tries and five try assists for the Giants this season.

The Red Devils already have one of the Super League’s best centre partnerships. Nene MacDonald and Tim Lafai have been in stellar form this season and have played an important role in driving Salford up the Super League table. The signing raises a question mark over Lafai’s future with the club. Lafai is out of contract at the end of the season and is attracting interest from rival Super League clubs.

“The versatile centre is an exciting addition to Paul Rowley’s squad and will join the club on a three-year deal – confirming his stay until the end of 2027.”

Salford currently sit in sixth place in the Super League table, and face a difficult game against Wigan Warriors this weekend. Huddersfield suffered a home defeat to the Leigh Leopards on Friday night, leaving them four points adrift of the top six.
