Former NRL utility signs with Salford

Daniel Vidot

His WWE dream may still be alive and kicking but in the mean-time, Daniel Vidot will still play rugby league after signing a 2-year deal with Super League side, the Salford Devils.

The 25-year old, who is a versatile player across the park, has previously had stints with the Canberra Raiders, the St George Illawarra Dragons and the Brisbane Broncos, all teams in the NRL.

Having made his first-grade debut back in 2009, the Samoan international is a player that Salford believe can help their side moving forward.

“We are delighted to have added both Justin Carney and now Daniel to our back line for next season in the last week and we are starting to look particularly strong in key areas,” said Head Coach, Ian Watson.

“Daniel will bring top class experience to us. He is used to a winning environment and his enthusiasm and keenness to get over with his new team have been great to see.”

The man himself is also excited about the move and he believes the club have a good chance of playing finals footy.

“A lot of talent has been recently recruited by the Club which I think will give Salford the edge,” said Vidot.

“Finals footy for me is the goal for 2016 and I personally think that the Red Devils will be next season’s dark horses.

“I’m very excited to come to Super League and the UK. I’ve been to England a couple of times now and I love the atmosphere and culture displayed by the English locals and fans of rugby league.”
