Salford sign Joe Burgess from Wigan

Winger Joe Burgess has joined Salford Red Devils from Wigan Warriors on a three-year contract, the Super League side have announced.

The signing of the Englishman, who had a brief spell in the NRL with Sydney Roosters and South Sydney Rabbitohs four years ago, comes just three days after Salford named Richard Marshall as their new head coach.

The 26-year-old England international Burgess said: “This is a big step for me to make sure I get in next year’s England squad.

“I’ve got a new set of teammates so I need to fit myself in and do my best for them.

“The halfbacks here have got a lot of knowledge of the game, so hopefully that can bring the best out of me.

“There are some of the other lads who I know already. I’ve missed Sarg (former Wigan teammate Dan Sarginson). He’s a big character on and off the field, so I’m looking forward to working with him again.”
