If there is one Super League signing that has been in inspired form in 2022 then it is Salford Red Devils star Brodie Croft.
The livewire halfback has built quite a reputation for himself at the AJ Bell Stadium after arriving on a deal from Brisbane Broncos where he was often in the public eye.
At Brisbane, Croft came under fire after moving from the Melbourne Storm as the next big thing, but failed to settle in seamlessly and left for Salford ahead of the 2022 season.
It’s been an incredible transformation for the diminutive halfback and he scored an incredible try against the Castleford Tigers yesterday as the Red Devils put their play-off rivals to the sword live on Sky Sports.
And, Croft has revealed just how much he is enjoying himself at the AJ Bell Stadium after rekindling his love for rugby league under Paul Rowley.
“I’ve found that enjoyment for football again and that’s the biggest thing,” Croft told Sky Sports after the game.
“Coming over and playing with these boys and finding the love for the game that I lost a bit at the back end of last year has been so good.
“I’m loving it.”
Croft had previously been coy about returning to the NRL in the future.
“I would never say no or close the door or anything but I’m not looking too far ahead either,” Croft told the Out Of Your League podcast.
“When I was at Melbourne I thought I was going to play my whole career there.
“I spent four years there and moved to Brisbane and then I thought that would be it and I would finish my career at Brisbane. That was my mindset and it didn’t happen.
“Now that I’ve come over here, I’m on a two-year deal at the moment, but I’m not looking anywhere past that and I’m focusing on the now and whatever happens can happen with the enjoyment I’ve brought back to my game.”
Salford fans will be desperately hoping that Croft continues to weave his magic as the Red Devils head for the play-offs.
