Super League club Salford have already announced they have released the Samoan international by mutual consent halfway through his two-year contract.

Salford coach Ian Watson said: “Daniel came across to give it a fair crack. He struggled with injuries early on which didn’t allow him to get up to speed as quickly the other boys and he’s struggled with some family issues.

“We understand that family is hugely important for Daniel, who provides a lot for his loved ones, and we were never going to stand in his way when he said he wanted to go back.”

Vidot said: “I’ve really enjoyed my time here. It wasn’t easy last season with injuries but I really gave it my best shot. It’s a decision made purely for my own reasons and has nothing to do with anyone at the club.

“Everyone here has been massively supportive of me and I can’t thank them enough.”

  1. I didn’t manage to catch Vidot in the Super League, did he manage to learn how to catch a football? If not, send him into the pack because he shouldn’t go anywhere near a bomb or grubber.

    • I reckon he’d make a decent wide running second rower ….. Something similar to the move Mata’utia has made.

      • Yer I agree but you guys have big names and money already in that position, if he goes over it will definitely be on the wing and should be a decent buy

        • I would try Vidot in the centres before I would put him on the wing (his time as a winger has long passed IMO). At this point (since he has bulked up) he would be best off in the back row and trying to become an impact forward off the bench. If his attitude is right and he is willing to work hard he looks like a good depth signing for the Titans who look to be building well for 2017.

        • It’s hard cause I reckon he’ll be behind Hurrell, Sarginson, Don, Davis, Olive and potentially Copley for the wing/centre spots.

          My lineup up for round 1 next year (if Copley and Vete join the Titans

          1 Hayne
          2 Davis
          3 Copley
          4 Hurrell
          5 Don
          6 Elgey
          7 Taylor
          8 James
          9 Peats
          10 Wallace
          11 McQueen
          12 Proctor
          13 Passi

          14 Roberts
          15 Taia
          16 Vete
          17 Pulu

        • not sure if you guys will get vete the warriors should be doing everything to keep as he was probably our strongest forward but if you do good on you you have one hell of a buy.

          i’m not to sold on sarginson at all i though he was average at best in the 4 nations and usually the backs for england don’t work in nrl so if you don’t get copley i could see davis to centre and vidot to wing or something like that

        • i agree mate, he is a big signing for the titans. Titans have often lacked a back who can churn out the big meters. I remember at Broncos, he often finished the game with more running meters then our forward pack.
