Adam Walker joins Salford Red Devils

In today’s edition of the Manchester Evening News, it was exclusively revealed that prop-forward Adam Walker has joined Salford Red Devils.
Walker hasn’t played since testing positive for cocaine whist at Wakefield Trinity in 2017, but the now reformed character has the chance to make an impact once again; an opportunity that isn’t lost on him.
The 27-year-old said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to have a club for the 2019 season and I’m extremely grateful to Salford Red Devils for giving me this opportunity.
“From day one speaking to Director of Rugby and Operations Ian Blease and Head Coach Ian Watson I could see that Salford – as a Club – have some real strong beliefs and values that centre around the community and doing good in the local area. I knew straight away that this was the kind of club I wanted to be at.
“I’ve not been perfect in the past. I don’t think anyone is. But you need to learn from your mistakes and develop as a person and player afterwards.
“It’s been a tough few years for myself not being able to play the sport I love on a regular basis. I was suffering from some mental health issues at the time which in turn led to me making a big mistake. I don’t want to use that as an excuse, I accepted and learnt from my punishment.
“In my time away from the game I feel like I’ve matured a lot. I honestly feel I’ve turned the corner, I’ve regained my love for the sport back and I’m ready for the next chapter.
“At a club like Salford, I’ve got the best opportunity to continue to grow as a person by going into the community, talking about the lessons I’ve learnt and promoting Rugby League in a positive manner.
“The sport of Rugby League has been very good to me. The support I received from the RFL, in particular Emma Rosewarne, was brilliant and really helped me on my road to recovery. I’ve now been offered a second chance and it’s up to me to make sure I grab it with both hands.”
Bradford-born Walker began his career with Huddersfield Giants but spent the majority on loan with Barrow Raiders and Swinton Lions. However, it was at Hull Kingston Rovers where the forward made his name while also being a regular for the Scottish National side.
Walker said: “I was playing at the highest and most consistent level I’ve ever competed at four or five years ago and I was loving every minute of it.
“During my time at Hull Kingston Rovers I managed to draw attention from Australia and even spoke to Melbourne Storm, but I decided to see out my contract at Hull. Chris Chester was very supportive of me and that helped massively. Of course, I got the move to St Helens and then eventually Wakefield, both of whom are great Super League clubs.
“I was also in the Scotland National side on a regular basis and for that to slip away because of a silly decision whilst at Wakefield was massively disappointing but it has only made me hungrier now to turn things around and strive to get back to where I want to be.”
Due to his suspension, Walker is yet to train with the Red Devils but has no concerns about catching up on pre-season and returning to the field in top condition.
Walker said: “I know I’ve a lot of work to do. I’ve not been able to train but once I’m allowed to get back on the field regularly.
“I know the Head Strength and Conditioning – Greg Brown – from my time with Swinton and I know he will get the best out of me physically. I’ll be pushing myself further than I have before to ensure I’m ready for my first game back whenever that may be.”
Adam Walker will be available to play for the Red Devils in March.
Salford Red Devils return to action for the first time in almost four months on Saturday as they clash with local rivals Swinton Lions at the AJ Bell Stadium, 1pm kick-off. Tickets are available at the AJ Bell Stadium, over the phone and online HERE.

Jackson Hastings | “It’s an exciting time”

Earlier today Salford Red Devils confirmed the signing of Australian halfback Jackson Hastings for the remainder of the season and we caught up with the 22-year-old ahead of his move to the AJ Bell Stadium in an exclusive interview.
Hastings said: “I absolutely can’t wait to get over and get stuck into training, meet the boys, coaching staff and the wonderful fans – it’s an exciting time.
“I’m looking forward to keeping this Club where it belongs and that is in the Betfred Super League.
“But, first and foremost, my first goal is to rip in to training and show my new teammates and coaches that I’m a winner by training as hard as I can, preparing as well as I can and taking each game as it comes.”


“I know quite a bit about the Betfred Super League as I’m a huge Rugby League fan in general and always get up early to watch the televised games from abroad.
“I really respect and admire how good some of the players that the competition has produced are and I’m lucky I’ll now get the chance to mingle and play against them.”
Hastings will look to add another dimension to the Red Devils attack in the final few months of the 2018 campaign and is a vocal and creative halfback.
“I think my communication on the field has always been a natural strong point in my game. If you’re playing at 6, 7, 9 or 1 you are the voice of the team and need to be good at that,” Hastings said.
He added: “Competitiveness is something I base my game around and I pride myself on competing on every play no matter the result and doing all that I can to ensure the team gets the result we are looking for.
“The last major part would be my passing and kicking game. It’s something I work hard on and love seeing my team mates score or create opportunities off a nicely weighted kick or a nice sharp pass.
“I’ll do my best to bring this and more to the Club!”


The 22-year-old has played in England before with the Roosters and has already had a taste of life in around the Salford and Manchester area.
Hastings said: “I’ve been over before with my most recent trip coming three years ago with Sydney Roosters when we faced St Helens in the World Club Challenge series.
“I loved Manchester, especially the shopping. England is a great part of the world and I’m lucky to have family from and still living there at the moment.
“I have a lot of mates from rival clubs too, so hopefully I get the opportunity to get one up on them.”
The Australian halfback has impressed at both Sydney Roosters and Manly Sea Eagles and admits he has taken inspiration from two legends of the Betfred Super League.
Hastings said: “From an English standpoint I loved Kevin Sinfield and Danny McGuire as a kid. Leeds were a dominate team and were constantly on TV in Australia.
“As those two played similar positions to me I admired how good those two were and obviously Danny still to this day has all the tricks in the book.
“The big one was Johnathan Thurston. Everything that he did and still brings to the table is something I truly admire and respect.
“He’s a once in a generation player and I still can’t believe I’ll get to say I played against him.
“I can’t wait to get over and join the Salford Red Devils.”

 

Preview | Hull FC vs Salford Red Devils | Friday 8th June

Salford Red Devils travel to Hull FC in search of two crucial points in the hunt for a spot inside the Super 8s.
Here is our preview of the fixture including both teams recent form, team news, full squads and a head-to-head between two players who could be pivotal in the outcome of the game.
Last Time Out
The Red Devils suffered defeat at the hands of Huddersfield Giants in their last outing but did go into the break in the lead thanks to tries from Niall Evalds and Junior Sa’u. The centre did power over for a second late on, but Huddersfield’s comeback had already been complete with scores from Darnell McIntosh, Daniel Smith, Jordan Turner and Kruise Leeming.
Hull FC’s two-year unbeaten run in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup came to an end last weekend as they suffered a 25-22 defeat at the hands of current Betfred Super League leaders St Helens at the Totally Wicked Stadium.
Albert Kelly, James Green, Scott Taylor and Hakim Miloudi all crossed for Hull FC however doubles from Mark Percival and Regan Grace alongside a terrific kicking display from Danny Richardson, which included a drop-goal, sealed victory for the Saints.
Form
Salford will be looking to get back to winning ways this weekend against Hull FC after a difficult spell in May. The Red Devils came close to turning their fortunes around last weekend against Huddersfield and a victory on Friday evening could see them climb back into the top eight.
FC have had a mixed bag of results lately with the defeat against St Helens following a 30-12 loss to Warrington Wolves at the backend of May. However, prior to this the Black and Whites had won consecutive games against Featherstone Rovers in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup and local rivals Hull Kingston Rovers at the Dacia Magic Weekend.
Team News
Ian Watson welcomes back Josh Jones into the squad who has been out since the Red Devils last away victory against Huddersfield Giants. Kris Welham has also recovered from an injury he sustained at the Dacia Magic Weekend.
Jack Littlejohn also returns to the squad to face the side he scored his first-ever Red Devils try against. Lama Tasi is also reintroduced into the squad while Ryan Lannon and Gavin Bennion are the two changes from last week’s squad.
Niall Evalds is sidelined with a broken leg which he picked up against Huddersfield a fortnight ago while Kriss Brining also remains out due to injury.
Lee Radford’s Hull FC have been struggling with injuries and have a number of first team regulars missing including Sika Manu, Danny Houghton and Dean Hadley.
Long-term absentees Marc Sneyd, Josh Bowden, Josh Griffin, Fetuli Talanoa and Jordan Abdull are all also unavailable.
Head-to-Head
With Josh Jones looking set to return for the Red Devils the second-rower features in this week’s head-to-head against Hull FC back-rower Mark Minichiello.
Jones has a powerful running game out wide for the Red Devils and is always a threat on the opponent’s line. The former St Helens man still sits second in terms of offloads for the team this season despite being sidelined for two months and his hands could very well create some openings for Salford on Friday evening.
Minichiello is a workhorse for the Black and Whites sitting fourth in FC’s tackle count so far this season. The Italian international – much like Jones – has terrific hands and sits second in the Hull’s offloading ranks thus far in 2018.
While both forwards defensive efforts will be massive for their respective sides the game could come down to one pivotal offload or play from the back-rowers to edge their team in front.
Squads:
Hull FC: Shaul, Faraimo, Tuimavave, Kelly, Taylor, Minichiello, Connor, Green, Washbrook, Fash, Paea, Logan, Lane, Downs, Miloudi, Matongo, Scott, Westerman, Harris.
Salford: Johnson, Welham, Sa’u, Lui, Littlejohn, Kopczak, Tomkins, G. Griffin, Jones, Flanagan, Tasi, McCarthy, Nakubuwai, Wood, Olpherts, Mossop, Bibby, Murray, Shorrocks.

Kit | Limited-Edition Magic Weekend shirt wins ‘Battle of the kits’

Salford Red Devils Limited-Edition 2018 Dacia Magic Weekend shirt has won this year’s ‘Battle of the Kits’ on the Super League’s Official Twitter page.
The 2018 Limited-Edition shirt is in support of the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund with the Red Devils wearing the kit almost a year to the date of last year’s tragedy at the Manchester Arena.
Mitsubishi Motors moved their Main Partner sponsorship from the front of the shirt to allow the iconic bee symbol which became synonymous with Manchester in the week’s following.
The kit was met with an outpouring of positive publicity and support for the cause on release and has been extremely popular – not just with Salford fans but – with the wider Rugby League community.
Our kit beat St Helens’ Autism Awareness strip in the final – another brilliant Club supporting a fantastic cause.

Stat Pack | Salford Red Devils 10-60 St Helens

Salford Red Devils fell to defeat against St Helens last night and we take a look at the stats behind the result in this week’s ‘Stat Pack’. 
Logan Tomkins 
This week’s ‘Player in Focus’ is Logan Tomkins who spent two separate spells on the field in defeat against St Helens interchanging with fellow hooker Josh Wood.
Tomkins was Salford’s busiest man in defence making 46 tackles – nine more than any other Red Devil. Logan finished the evening with a 96% tackle rate which put him behind only George Griffin and Jack Littlejohn.
At hooker, Tomkins made more passes than any of his teammates with 72 attempted throughout the game. Tomkins also made four carries from acting half-back winning 21 metres. 
Overall stats
Saints controlled the majority of the game which was evident in the stats following the final whistle.
The visitors spent ten minutes more than Salford in possession, completed ten more sets and having around 40 more play-the-balls. While the Red Devils did a lot of defending, Saints managed to limit there’s making around 90 less tackles.
Salford managed to rack up 829 metres in total, forced four clean breaks and made three offloads on Thursday night.
Tackling
Salford spent large periods of the game defending with the majority of the Red Devils forwards racking up 20+ tackles. Ryan Lannon – who has returned to the side in recent weeks – clocked off at 37 tackles and was closely followed by George Griffin with 33.
Luke Burgess, Mark Flanagan, Craig Kopczak, Lama Tasi and Tyrone McCarthy all found themselves with 20+ defensive efforts throughout the game. Kris Welham was the only back to rack up over 20 tackles finishing the evening with 23.
As mentioned, Logan Tomkins amounted 46 tackles – more than any other player on the field.

Three Talking Points | Salford Red Devils 10-60 St Helens

Following last night’s defeat against St Helens we take a look at three talking points from the game.
Red card
Matty Lees saw himself dismissed in the closing stages of the first half for a swinging arm which caught Niall Evalds flush on the chin in contact. The impact forced the full-back to drop the ball which led to a Saints opportunity which video referee Ben Thaler ruled out.
Referee Chris Kendall sent Lees from the field for the challenge which could have signalled a Salford fightback however St Helens didn’t miss a beat and continued in the same vein for the remaining 43 minutes.
Returning players
The Red Devils have been hit with a handful of injuries in recent weeks but forward duo Lama Tasi and Lee Mossop both returned last night.
While it was a tough evening for the forwards against a strong St Helens pack it was good to see two of Salford’s standout performers this season back on the field ahead of a crucial run of games in the coming weeks.
Jake Shorrocks
Half-back Jake Shorrocks – who has extended his stay with the Red Devils for another month – featured for the second time since joining Salford.
Shorrocks began the game in the halves on a difficult evening which didn’t see Salford with ball in hand for large periods. However, the youngster took the ball to the Saints line well and was always looking for openings.
The 22-year-old moved to full-back following Niall Evalds’ forced departure due to concussion and showed his versatility slotting into the attacking line at speed when the Red Devils went forward.

Match Report | Salford Red Devils 10-60 St Helens

Ben Barba claimed a hat-trick as Salford Red Devils fell to a 10-60 home defeat at the hands of Betfred Super League leaders St Helens on a disappointing evening at the AJ Bell Stadium.
Alongside Barba’s treble, Ryan Morgan and Regan Grace each claimed a brace apiece whilst Tommy Makinson, Dominique Peyroux, Mark Percival and Theo Fages also crossed to secure a comfortable triumph for Justin Holbrook’s side.
Salford headed into the contest on the back of successive victories, but they made the worst start possible when Junior Sa’u gifted the visitors possession through an incorrect play-the-ball. The following play resulted in a try as Tommy Makinson latched onto the end of Ben Barba’s defence-splitting pass and emphatically finished in the right-hand corner with just four minutes on the clock.
Daniel Richardson was unable to add the extras but Saints did extend their lead soon after –  Richardson’s looping kick caused mayhem amongst the Salford backline and the lively Makinson caught the high ball before finding the onrushing Dominique Peyroux who crossed over unchallenged.
On this occasion Richardson managed to convert the resulting goal and Justin Holbrook’s men were in again a minute later as Regan Grace broke down the left-hand side before flicking the ball infield to Ben Barba who slid over under the sticks despite the best efforts of Jake Bibby – Richardson again added the extras.
St Helens were running riot by this point and found themselves over again seven minutes later as Ryan Morgan fought off a number of Salford challenges before powering over from close-range before Richardson duly added the extras.
Salford regrouped and eventually clawed their way back into the contest as Tyrone McCarthy picked up a short ball from Logan Tomkins and touched down under the posts after bursting through a gap in the Saints line.
Jake Shorrocks successfully landed the subsequent conversion but the Red Devils almost conceded yet another Saints try – though Jonny Lomax was adjudged to have knocked the ball on by referee Chris Kendall.
The visitors weren’t to be denied for long however, Barba intercepted an offload from Josh Wood before racing 90m and crossing over for a spectacular individual effort – Richardson then landed the conversion to further increase the margin between the two sides.
Saints crossed over again when Peyroux touched down but the score was chalked off as Matty Lees was sent off after striking Niall Evalds’ head in the build-up.
However, St Helens were to have the last laugh as Regan Grace finished off a well worked move in the corner in what proved to be the final action of the half.
After the interval, the Welshman picked up where he left off and finished well in the left-hand corner following an enticing cross-field pass from Barba – Richardson added the extras.
The table toppers showed no misery towards the Reds and crossed over again moments later as Mark Percival finished off a break down the left before Barba grabbed his hat-trick with a simple finish under the sticks.
Salford were reduced to 12 men when Sa’u and St Helens lost a man of their own, albeit through injury as Barba was stretchered off after a nasty collision.
Theo Fages returned to haunt the Red Devils after his dummy deceived the Salford backline and allowed the Frenchman to touch down before Morgan touched down to secure his second of the evening.
Salford had the final say however as Kris Welham latched onto Shorrock’s grubber kick to claim a late consolation for Ian Watson’s side.
