Salford forward signs new deal

Salford Red Devils forward Lee Mossop has signed a two-year contract extension at the club, keeping him there until the end of 2022.

Mossop has been at the club since signing from Wigan ahead of the 2017 season. He played a key role in the Red Devils making the Super League Grand Final last year.

He said: “I love playing at Salford, so this was an easy decision to make.

“I play my best rugby under Watto (Ian Watson) and I remember last time he extended I did the same straight away.

“At the moment, we’ve got a great group, so my job as captain isn’t a difficult one. We’ve changed the culture since I first joined the club, with every player coming here to achieve.

“It was outstanding to lead the team out at Old Trafford and at the DW, with that away end packed. Now we’ve had time to reflect, it’s something that drives us on.

“I want to lift some silverware during my time at the club.”

Head Coach Ian Watson added: “When he joined us in 2017, he embraced the challenges that we at Salford face and quickly established himself as a leader and the captain of our group.

“He’s driven the standards of being a team that competes and challenges the best teams, by pushing players to be better and leading with his actions on and off the field.

“We all saw in the run up to last year’s Grand Final and the last few games before the break, that he’s amongst the best front-rowers in our game and hopefully over the next few years Salford and Moose can have further success together.”
