Brodie Croft

Salford Red Devils new signing Brodie Croft spoke of his excitement ahead of the 2022 Super League season after moving to the club.

After joining from Australian side Brisbane Broncos in August, Croft joins the Red Devils on a two-year deal with Paul Rowley’s side.

Speaking ahead of the new season, beginning in February, Croft gave an insight into what the Devils faithful can expect from the Aussie half-back.

“Hopefully some exciting attack, I love attacking”, Croft grinned, “So hopefully I can spark up my attack game, take the line on and a lot of running and a few kicks here and there.”

Prior to making his move to Salford, Croft spent two years at Brisbane Broncos and admits it was his want for more clarity at his former club which prompted his move to Super League.

The 24-year-old said: “Things were just kind of floating a little bit, I just wanted a bit more clarity. Those two years, I’m not going to lie, they were difficult years but I feel like I learned a lot in those two years.

“What Salford had here, the coaching staff, ‘Bleasy’ (Ian Blease) and the direction they wanted to go in, it followed the way I wanted to go. They put a lot of confidence in me and it feels like a really good move for my career at this stage.

“I’m still young, I feel like I’ve got a lot to learn still but I feel I’ve got a lot to give as well, that gives me confidence, having that accountability with a bit more leadership, that’s really exciting here at Salford.”



The new Super League season gets underway in February, and Croft believes the team is shaping up nicely ahead of the curtain raiser in a couple of months’ time, saying: “I feel like we’ve got a great spine shaping up.

“I’m really loving the conversations that we’re having at training, both on and off the paddock with regards to football. I feel like everyone’s thorough with their rugby league, and they think deeply about it. I love having those sorts of conversations, the more we have these sorts of conversations the more we’ll click as a spine and as a team and hopefully that can reflect in the results on the field.”
