New signing, Ethan Ryan has provided an insight into what Salford Red Devils supporters can expect to see from him on the field.

Signing a three-year deal, the 27-year-old will add some serious quality and versatility to Paul Rowley’s squad for 2024 and beyond.

Becoming a real try scoring threat during his time with Bradford Bulls and Hull KR, the Ireland international will be hoping to continue his promising development at the Salford Stadium.

“I pride myself on the little efforts that probably go unnoticed sometimes,” Ryan said, speaking exclusively to our YouTube channel.

“Obviously I can play wing, fullback, so I can add a lot in attack – try scoring and that sort of ability.

“But I think just the little one percenters and helping out the team in little ways that I can all over the field – that’s what you’ll notice from me.”

His stats make for exciting reading.

After scoring 88 tries in just 98 appearances at the Bulls, Ryan notched a further 22 in his four years at KR.

Injuries certainly hampered his last campaign with the Robins, but when asked what environment he needs to play his best rugby, Ryan believes the trust and backing of the coaching staff is vital.

“I think confidence is a big one – I’m a confidence player, I think a lot of people are,” Ryan continued.

“When I feel good and I know I’m backed by the coach, it portrays onto the field.

“I think that’s a big thing, me feeling good and playing good. So, hopefully when I come in – get training with the boys and stuff – when the season comes around, I can demonstrate that!”

Ethan Ryan is really excited about his move to Salford Red Devils, citing our style of rugby as a crucial factor in his decision.

The Ireland international has put pen to paper on a three-year deal and joins the club following a successful four-year stint at Hull KR.

After joining the Robins from Bradford Bulls in 2020, Ryan scored 22 tries in 42 appearances and showcased his versatility across the team.

Speaking exclusively to our YouTube channel, Ryan was asked how it feels to finally get his switch confirmed.

“It sounds exciting,” he said with a grin.

“It’s obviously a bit different now. I’ve been at Hull KR the last four years, but an opportunity come up that I could join the Red Devils and I’ve took that – I can’t wait to get started.”

There will be a reunion for Ryan with Kurt Haggerty, who he played alongside during his time at Bradford.

Now in a role off the pitch, Ryan referenced Salford’s Assistant Coach when asked why – at this stage in his career – he believed this is the right move.

“I met with the club and I’ve known Kurt (Haggerty) for quite a while,” the 27-year-old continued.

“I used to play with him at Bradford and they got in contact with my agent, we had a meeting; and from the outside looking in, I just love how the club play, the style of rugby under Rowls – so that was a big factor.

“I just think it will suit my game a lot. There’s real attacking flair – it’s the type of rugby I like to play, so that’s why I decided to do it!”

We are delighted to reveal the signing of Ireland international, Ethan Ryan on a three-year deal

The 27-year-old has become the club’s second signing of the window, following Papua New Guinea international, Nene Macdonald, through the door.

Ryan began his rugby league career at Bradford Bulls, where his impressive return of 88 tries in 98 appearances caught the eye of a few Betfred Super League clubs.

“I am really looking forward to playing in a team that plays like Salford does. As an outsider looking in you admire the rugby the club plays and I’m glad I can be a part of that now – and hopefully add something myself.

“I will always give 100% on the field and I can’t wait to put that shirt on, and show the fans what I can do!”

Head Coach, Paul Rowley has added: “Ethan is a quality addition to our team.

“He can play a couple of positions to a high standard and his addition will help drive standards and competition within the squad.

Director of Rugby & Operations, Ian Blease, has added: “I am delighted that we have been able to bring Ethan to the club.

“I would like to welcome Ethan and his family to Salford!”
