The Salford Red Devils have added experienced Kiwi forward Elijah Taylor for next two seasons.

Taylor, who has played in 180 NRL games across the New Zealand Warriors, Penrith Panthers, and Wests Tigers, will link up with several former teammates.

He will link up with the likes of Krisnan Inu and Tuimoala Lolohea from his Warrior days, as Taylor looks forward to joining Salford.

“I’ve spoken to a few of the players who I know, and Salford sounds like a great club,” Taylor said.

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity of playing at Salford, ripping into training and living over there.

“I’ve been following Salford over the last two years and have always wanted to play in the Super League at some stage.

“Speaking with Rich, I’m excited about playing for the Club.”

Salford coach Richard Marshall has backed Taylor to perform strongly and knows his experience will be crucial for the side.

“Elijah has the quality to have a massive impact on this team with his actions on and off the field,” Marshall said.

“He already has a good relationship with Tui from their time at Wests Tigers and I’m looking forward to seeing them play together in Salford shirts.

“I also think Elijah’s experience on the world stage will make him a great influence on the rest of our pack, and in particular our younger players.”
