Salford Red Devils have confirmed the loan signings of Greg Burke and Ed Chamberlain from Widnes Vikings with Weller Hauraki heading to the Select Security Stadium as part of the deal.
Chamberlain recently featured in the Rugby League World Cup for Ireland while Burke came through the ranks at Wigan Warriors. Hauraki – who has spent three full seasons with the Red Devils – will head the other way in the swap deal.
Salford Red Devils Head Coach Ian Watson said: “It’s great that we’ve been able to bring two new players into the side at this crucial juncture of the 2018 Betfred Super League season.
"Ed’s recent exploits in the Betfred Super League and at an international level with Ireland in the 2017 Rugby League World Cup have developed him into a real prospect.
"Greg [Burke] is a player who has competed at the highest level when coming through the ranks at Wigan Warriors and will add much-needed steel to our forward pack.
“Weller [Hauraki] has been an important member of our squad over the past few seasons and has proven to be an asset both on and off the field. All the players and staff would like to wish him all the best for the future.
“The opportunity which has arisen has seen us gain two young British players in exchange for Weller and this is a massive lift to our squad.”
