Salford Red Devils are delighted to announce that Prop Forward Craig Kopczak has a agreed a new contract with the club.

Kopczak, who is captain of the Wales national side, joined the Red Devils in 2016 and has quickly established himself as a fans favourite, being ever present for the side in 2016.

Head Coach Ian Watson was hugely impressed by Craig’s contribution since joining the club, and is hugely satisfied that Kopczak has committed his future to the club, he said;

“We were really keen to keep Craig, himself and George Griffin were the cornerstone of our pack in 2016 and that held us together as unit last year.

He’s a player who gives 100% every time he goes onto the field, for his team mates and the club, and hopefully he can build on his performances along with the team to make us a genuine super league force.”

With the Red Devils performing well on the field of late, CEO Ian Blease is pleased to see the stability being achieved off the field, he said;

“Craig has really committed to this club since joining last season, and this deal represents that. It’s fantastic to see players that want to be part of this club, and are proud to play for the Red Devils.”

Kopczak joins Gareth O’Brien, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Junior Sa’u, Weller Hauraki, and Lama Tasi in signing a new deal with the Red Devils.
