Cade Cust says he has enjoyed his first full week as a Salford Red Devils player.

The Aussie signed for the club after a two-year stint at Wigan Warriors, signing a one-year deal, with the option to extend his stay by a further season.

A powerful halfback, Cust will be hoping to kick-on his career with some regular game time, under the tutelage of Paul Rowley.

Speaking to our YouTube channel, Cust was asked what abilities he will be bringing to the squad during 2024.

“Definitely a running game,” he began.

“I think I’m a powerful six, so hopefully I can play plenty of games, stay on the pitch and get plenty of wins for the club – I’m really looking forward to it.

“One of the main things for me is playing consistent, week in, week out and putting points on the board.”

On his first week as a whole, the 25-year-old said: “It’s been very enjoyable.

“First week is obviously the hardest, so I feel like I’ve fit in really well with the players and the coaching staff.”

Cust has joined a very close-nit group; a bond that’s powered the team to some famous victories over the last 24 months.

“It’s been perfect,” he continued when discussing the group dynamic.

“Everyone has welcomed me and it’s been an easy transition. I knew a few boys from Wigan and a couple of the Aussie’s I get along really well with!”

We are delighted to reveal the signing of Cade Cust on a one-year deal, with an option to extend by a further season.

The Aussie becomes our fifth addition of the off-season, joining Papua New Guinea international, Nene Macdonald, Ireland international, Ethan Ryan, as well as Matty Foster and Kai Morgan, through the door.

Born in Scone, New South Wales, Cust began his rugby league career at the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, making his NRL debut in 2019.

After making 10 appearances, the halfback signed a two-year deal at Wigan Warriors, where he made 40 appearances, scoring six tries.

During his time at the DW, Cust has won the Betfred Super League, the League Leaders Shield and the Betfred Challenge Cup – playing a vital role in their final success against Huddersfield Giants in 2022.

He now makes the switch to Salford, looking to continue his development under the guidance of Paul Rowley and his coaching staff.

Upon confirmation of his move, Cust said: “I am really looking forward to meeting everyone involved at the club.

“To the fans, I am a competitor who loves the game and can’t wait to represent you all!”

“I have watched enough of him to confidently say there is a very talented rugby player who will thrive amongst this outstanding group of lads at Salford.

“After some good conversations with Cade, it is clear to me that his enthusiasm, determination, belief and good character are a great fit and addition to our group.

“Myself, Kurt and Krissy are delighted to commit to Cade and supporting him to be his absolute best!”

Director of Rugby and Operations, Ian Blease also said: “It is great news to bring a player of Cade’s calibre to Salford Red Devils.

“He is a player full of potential and we believe this is the perfect environment for him to progress and show our supporters what he is capable of.

“I want to welcome Cade and his family to the club – I look forward to seeing what we can achieve together!”
