Salford City Reds sign Shannan McPherson from Rabbitohs

Salford City Reds have completed the signing of forward Shannan McPherson from Australian side South Sydney Rabbitohs.

The 26-year-old second rower, who has agreed a three-year deal, will join up with his new team in December.

Head coach Matt Parish said: "I've watched Shannan for a number of years and he's got a good career ahead of him here at Salford.

"He's a hard-working, hard-runing forward who will fit in well here."

McPherson has played 91 times for the Rabbitohs, owned by top Hollywood actor Russell Crowe.
