Orr joins Salford

Former Castleford Tigers scrum half Danny Orr has joined Salford Red Devils as assistant coach.

The former Tigers assistant and Great Britain international, will now help newly appointed head coach Richard Marshall prepare the team ahead of next season.

Orr said: “I think this is a really good move for me, working with Rich. He’s an enthusiastic young coach.

“I’ve been speaking to Rich over the past few days and I’ll be focusing on coaching the attack. We have the same philosophy on a lot of things, but we’re also willing to challenge each other.

Head coach Marshall added: “I’m really pleased to have Danny working alongside me.

“I spent some time at Castleford when I was head coach at Halifax and he was part of a strong coaching team there.

“I could see how he worked and helped develop the players. He’s an experienced assistant in Super league and will have input in our back play and attack.

“He also has a sound knowledge on defensive systems and kicking too. Taking all that into account, It’s a really good fit for our coaching team and I’m excited to see him develop further here.”
