Towering young prop Dan Norman has joined Richard Marshall's Salford on a initial one week loan deal.
Norman signed on a two year deal from London Broncos in December 2020 and has only featured once for Saints – in a short stint against Hull FC in the Challenge Cup Semi Final as he came on for the final few minutes.
But the 6ft-5in 23-year-old will join up with former Saints Assistant, Richard Marshall’s Salford and is in-line to feature against Saints Challenge Cup Final opponents, Castleford Tigers on Sunday at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle (3.30pm).
Salford Red Devils have stated on their official website that they have had two players test positive for COVID-19 in the camp, which now brings their total number of cases up to seven. This is on top of 11 players who have been in self-isolation since last week due to close contact.
Under the RFL’s Covid-19 protocols, a club can apply to postpone a match if seven or more senior players are unavailable as a result of Covid-19. However, with the recent chopping and changing of fixtures up and down the league, Salford Red Devils say they are determined to fulfil Sunday’s fixture against Castleford Tigers meaning Norman is likely to feature.
The loan will be initially for one week, but it will be renewed on a week by week basis.
Good luck, Dan!
