Sean Rutgerson is the next former Salford Red Devil to get his name placed on the ‘Willows Wall’ as part of the Heritage Team after winning our latest vote.
The South African prop-forward featured for Salford between 2004 and 2006 making over 70 appearances and crossing for five tries. He was a part of the 2006 side which finished 5th in the Betfred Super League; the Club’s highest-ever finish in the Super League era up until the 2016 season.
Rutgerson represented South Africa on three occasions throughout the 2000 Rugby League World Cup suffering defeats against Tonga, Papua New Guinea and France.
Prior to arriving at The Willows, Rutgerson spent time with North Sydney Bears and a successful three-year stint with Canberra Raiders. Following his time at Salford, he would feature for Jacksonville Axemen and is now the Head Coach of the USA National Rugby League side.
