Salford's Griffin brothers - Darrell, Josh and George - could play alongside each other for the first time despite the death of their father this week.

Darrell, 33, Josh, 25, and George, 22, made themselves available for the Magic Weekend game against Widnes on Saturday being played in Newcastle.

They played in a friendly but have not yet played together for the first team.

"Me and my brothers have put our hands up this week to play in memory of him," Josh Griffin wrote on Twitter.external-link

"He would have wanted us to take that field, he loved watching us play and I'm sure it's going to be an emotional experience."

Former England prop Darrell played alongside centre Josh when they were both at Huddersfield, while forward George joined his brothers at AJ Bell Stadium in the winter from London Broncos.

Salford owner Marwan Koukash said: "I have nothing but admiration for the strength and professionalism of the three brothers."
