New signing, Ethan Ryan has provided an insight into what Salford Red Devils supporters can expect to see from him on the field.
Signing a three-year deal, the 27-year-old will add some serious quality and versatility to Paul Rowley’s squad for 2024 and beyond.
Becoming a real try scoring threat during his time with Bradford Bulls and Hull KR, the Ireland international will be hoping to continue his promising development at the Salford Stadium.
“I pride myself on the little efforts that probably go unnoticed sometimes,” Ryan said, speaking exclusively to our YouTube channel.
“Obviously I can play wing, fullback, so I can add a lot in attack – try scoring and that sort of ability.
“But I think just the little one percenters and helping out the team in little ways that I can all over the field – that’s what you’ll notice from me.”
His stats make for exciting reading.
After scoring 88 tries in just 98 appearances at the Bulls, Ryan notched a further 22 in his four years at KR.
Injuries certainly hampered his last campaign with the Robins, but when asked what environment he needs to play his best rugby, Ryan believes the trust and backing of the coaching staff is vital.
“I think confidence is a big one – I’m a confidence player, I think a lot of people are,” Ryan continued.
“When I feel good and I know I’m backed by the coach, it portrays onto the field.
“I think that’s a big thing, me feeling good and playing good. So, hopefully when I come in – get training with the boys and stuff – when the season comes around, I can demonstrate that!”
