Salford Red Devils sign up Cory Paterson for 2015 season

Salford Red Devils bolstered their forward options for the 2015 Super League season with the addition of Cory Paterson.

The 27-year-old former Hull KR man originally left Wests Tigers at the end of the 2014 season to pursue a career in professional boxing.

Earlier in November Paterson won his second fight with a first round TKO, but will now make an immediate return to rugby league for next season.

Paterson, who has made over 100 appearances in the NRL is the Devils second signing in the space of a few days, following the capture of Scott Taylor from Wigan Warriors.

He will compete for back-row spots with internationals Gareth Hock, Weller Hauraki and Harrison Hansen who themselves will be pushed by the array of up and coming British.
