Salford Red Devils star linked with surprise transfer

Salford Red Devils star and former Hull KR winger Ken Sio left Salford Red Devils ahead of the 2024 season after being released on compassionate grounds.

The winger had become a cult hero at Salford after joining from Hull KR. At both clubs, he featured at Wembley in defeats to Leeds Rhinos.

Sio quickly established himself as one of the best wingers in the league leading the top try scorer charts in 2021 before coming close in 2022.

This saw him pick up back to back Super League Dream Team appearances but sadly for Salford fans the club have been forced to release him on compassionate grounds.

The club made the following statement: “We can confirm that the club have granted Ken Sio his release from Salford Red Devils on compassionate grounds, bringing to an end a magnificent five-year stay at the club.

“Adored by the fanbase and well-respected by all his teammates, Sio has been a consistent, high-quality performer for the Red Devils since his move from the Newcastle Knights in late-2018.

“He has scored a staggering 78 tries in just 104 appearances, notching his 100th in the Betfred Super League during our clash away at Huddersfield Giants, earlier this year.

“The 33-year-old has been our top try-scorer for three consecutive seasons and made two appearances in the Super League Dream Team.

“He was also crowned the Super League’s top try-scorer in 2021. His athleticism and incredible technical ability has been at the heart of so many big moments over the years and he leaves the club with the best wishes of everybody, as he returns home to be with his family.”

But what next for Sio? Well his priority is family at present but beyond that the winger has been linked with clubs in the NRL by reports but also reports down under claim he is likely to follow the likes of Blake Austin, David Fifita, Peter Mata’utia and others to the lower tiers in Australia such as the Newcastle based teams these star men have all joined.

This move would make a lot of sense for Sio at this stage of his career. Everyone at Serious About Rugby League wishes Sio well.
