Salford have confirmed the signing of Stephen Wild as their fourth major recruit for 2011.

The Huddersfield forward is going to The Willows on a three-year contract. He joins the Canterbury full-back Luke Patten, the Bradford centre Chris Nero and the Warrington forward Vinnie Anderson as the newcomers as the City Reds rebuild for what they hope will be continued life in Super League. Salford have also agreed a contract extension with their prop, Lee Jewitt.

The Australian Test forward Willie Mason has told Hull KR and Huddersfield to submit their offers before he decides which of them he is going to play for next season. The controversial Mason is out of contract this year at the North Queensland Cowboys and has narrowed his options down to the two clubs.
