Salford Red Devils secure star forward to new deal

Salford Red Devils Sam Stone celebrates with team mates and fans after scoring a golden point try to win the game

Salford Red Devils have confirmed that forward Sam Stone has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

The back-rower joined the Red Devils ahead of the 2023 season, making the switch from Leigh, and this extension confirms his stay until at least 2026.

The 26-year-old played for Newcastle Knights and Gold Coast Titans in NRL, where he scored five tries.

He then made a move to England, playing for Leigh Leopards as they were relegated before being key to their promotion back to Super League.

In addition, he’s played twice for Malta in test international matches,

Since signing for the Red Devils, Stone has scored ten tries in his 35 appearances, including a golden-point winner against Warrington Wolves in 2023.

This year, he’s again played a key role for the Red Devils, with two tries in a Round Two victory over Castleford the highlight of his season so far.

Interestingly, he’s the son of former Huddersfield Giants head coach Rick Stone.

“It was a relatively easy decision to stay; I have enjoyed my time here and I feel like I am continuing to improve under this coaching staff.

“This group of lads are fantastic to play alongside, and I can’t wait to see what we can achieve over the next few years!”

Head coach Paul Rowley also said: “It is fantastic that Sam has extended his contract and is staying with the group.

He’ll likely feature as Salford Red Devils face Warrington Wolves on Friday 14th June at 8pm at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
