We are delighted to announce Shane Wright has penned a new three-year deal at Salford Red Devils, keeping him at the Club until 2026.
Wright joined the club from North Queensland Cowboys after making 41 NRL appearances and penned a two-year deal at the Salford Stadium.
Since then, the Aussie has made 24 appearances, scored six tries and become a vital part of Paul Rowley’s back row.
Unfortunately, Wright was caught on the wrong side of a tackle against St Helens and is likely to miss the remainder of 2023 with an ankle injury.
Before that, the 27-year-old was in flying form and picked-up the club’s April Player of the Month award, as voted by the supporters.
In reaction to extending his stay with the Red Devils, Wright said: “I am pumped to extend my time here at Salford.
“We have a good group at the moment and the club is heading in the right direction, which I am excited to continue being a part of!”
Head Coach, Paul Rowley has added: “It is great news to keep Shane within the group. He is a young player with lots of potential, and all the drive and determination to reach it.
“He is a fantastic lad and really popular amongst the group. We are all delighted we get the pleasure of working alongside Shane going forward.”
Director of Rugby and Operations, Ian Blease also said: “It is a massive coup for the club to retain Shane’s services for the next three years.
“He is the ultimate professional, conducts himself with utter class and will no doubt play a major role in any future success this team has.
“His excellent form in 2023 was cut so cruelly short, but I know when he returns, it will be a massive boost for his teammates and the coaching staff!”
Everyone at Salford Red Devils would like to congratulate Shane on his new deal!
