Manly hooker Joey Lussick has signed with English championship team Salford for the remainder of the season, as reported by The Sydney Morning Herald.

The 22-year old will look to give the Red Devils a boost as they make a push for the the finals.

Salford head coach Ian Watson said Lussick will get the opportunity to rejoin fellow Manly recruit Jackson Hastings at the English club.

“He’s played Australian Schoolboys with Jackson, played at the Roosters with Jackson and at Manly with him so the combinations that normally take time to develop will already be there with a solid connection which will be a massive plus for us,” Watson told The Sydney Morning Herald.

“He will add some solid support alongside Josh Wood at this moment in time. He made a try-scoring NRL debut for Manly last season with a clever acting half- back play and has been a standout performer for Manly’s feeder team – Blacktown.

“He is always high on the tackle count and really strong in defence. We’re looking forward to welcoming Joey into the side for the remainder of the season.”

Lussick joins Salford after playing just one game for the Sea Eagles, making his debut for the NRL club in 2017.
