New Salford Red Devils (Betfred Super League outright 66/1) signing Ryan Brierley admits he cannot wait to play under Paul Rowley once again following his move from Leigh Centurions.

The Scotland international sealed a switch back to the Betfred Super League last month after Leigh’s relegation back to the Championship was confirmed.

It was one of the first acts of new coach Rowley, who was brought in to replace Richard Marshall, who departed the AJ Bell Stadium after a disappointing season last year.

The 2019 Super League Grand Finalists are looking to get back into at least play off contention this year and Brierley (Man of Steel 100/1) will be part of that.

He played under Rowley at both Leigh and Toronto Wolfpack and now the full-back will link up for a third time.

The 29-year-old is looking forward to what the new season will bring for the Red Devils.

Brierley, who can also play half-back, is convinced the relationship between he and Rowley could help them to a successful season.

“We’ve probably become a bit more content in what works for us both, both on and off the pitch,” he said. “He trusts me with my judgement and that’s probably the best compliment you can get from a coach, that they trust you.

“Even little things happening in training, he’s always come to me and asked my opinion of it.

“There are days we speak for hours on the most minute of situations, but it’s because we want to win, and probably the best compliment I can give him is he is a winner and that’s infectious throughout a club.”

Salford begin the season with a trip to Castleford Tigers (Match Betting – Castleford 2/5, Salford 2/1, draw 22/1) on February 11.
