Rugby league: Former NZ Warriors star Elijah Taylor inks two-year deal with Super League's Salford

Former Kiwis international Elijah Taylor has signed with English Super League club Salford on a two-year contract.

The 30-year-old has spent the last five seasons at Wests Tigers and has made close to 200 NRL appearances, including 67 with the New Zealand Warriors.

He started his career with the Auckland-based NRL club in 2011, starring in the Grand Final run of that year, before shifting to the Penrith Panthers under Ivan Cleary in 2016.

The forward has played 11 tests for the Kiwis - the last of which in 2017.

Taylor will have familiar faces among his teammates in Tui Lolohea, Sebastine Ikahihifo and Krisnan Inu - with the latter extending his stay at the club on Christmas Day.

"Elijah has the quality to have a massive impact on this team with his actions on and off the field," Red Devils head coach Richard Marshall said.
