Ethan Ryan is really excited about his move to Salford Red Devils, citing our style of rugby as a crucial factor in his decision.
The Ireland international has put pen to paper on a three-year deal and joins the club following a successful four-year stint at Hull KR.
After joining the Robins from Bradford Bulls in 2020, Ryan scored 22 tries in 42 appearances and showcased his versatility across the team.
Speaking exclusively to our YouTube channel, Ryan was asked how it feels to finally get his switch confirmed.
“It sounds exciting,” he said with a grin.
“It’s obviously a bit different now. I’ve been at Hull KR the last four years, but an opportunity come up that I could join the Red Devils and I’ve took that – I can’t wait to get started.”
There will be a reunion for Ryan with Kurt Haggerty, who he played alongside during his time at Bradford.
Now in a role off the pitch, Ryan referenced Salford’s Assistant Coach when asked why – at this stage in his career – he believed this is the right move.
“I met with the club and I’ve known Kurt (Haggerty) for quite a while,” the 27-year-old continued.
“I used to play with him at Bradford and they got in contact with my agent, we had a meeting; and from the outside looking in, I just love how the club play, the style of rugby under Rowls – so that was a big factor.
“I just think it will suit my game a lot. There’s real attacking flair – it’s the type of rugby I like to play, so that’s why I decided to do it!”
