Salford announce new assistant

Salford have announced that former Castleford assistant is to join them from 2021 as Richard Marshall’s deputy.

The Great Britain scrum-half had spent the past few years assisting Daryl Powell at the Mend-A-Hose jungle but the club confirmed in October that he would be departing his role.

He will now link up with newly-appointed Red Devils boss Richard Marshall, who is preparing for his first season as a Super League head coach.

“I think this is a really good move for me, working with Rich,” said Orr. “He’s an enthusiastic young coach.

“I’ve been speaking to Rich over the past few days and I’ll be focusing on coaching the attack. We have the same philosophy on a lot of things, but we’re also willing to challenge each other.”

Marshall added: “I’m really pleased to have Danny working alongside me. I could see how he worked and helped develop the players. He’s an experienced assistant in Super League and will have input in our back play and attack.

“He also has a sound knowledge on defensive systems and kicking too. Taking all that into account, It’s a really good fit for our coaching team and I’m excited to see him develop further here.”
