Reds sign former Rhino Hood

Salford have signed former Leeds hooker Liam Hood from Championship One club Hunslet.

The 22-year-old burst onto the scene with the Rhinos in 2012, scoring three tries in five appearances for the club.

However, he was released 12 months ago and joined the Hawks.

Salford coach Iestyn Harris said: "Liam comes with a great pedigree in rugby league.

"He's come up through the ranks of the academy at Leeds Rhinos and we're hoping Liam will be able to recapture his form in the top flight of rugby league and continue as one of the emerging talents in the game."

Hood will join the Reds at the start of the 2015 season.
