Hastings eager to repay Red Devils
Salford Red Devils star Jackson Hastings says he will do all he can to repay the club after rejecting a deal from Wigan.
The Australian will come up against the Warriors on Sunday in the Super League but he insists he has no regrets about staying at the AJ Bell Stadium.
Hastings was forced to quit the NRL 12 months ago after being sacked by Manly Sea Eagles following an alleged bust up with team-mate Daly Cherry-Evans.
The youngster nearly quit the game before joining the Red Devils and he has since become a household name in the UK.
Wigan's approach was rejected by the 23-year-old and Hastings is ready to repay the club.
He told The Guardian: "They saved my rugby career. I’d have had to go get an ordinary job because nobody wanted me in the NRL. Everyone thought I was trouble but Salford gave me a chance and, when I arrived, I wanted to make a good impression on the place.
"We can go as far as we want to go," Hastings added. "I know it’s a long year but we’ve started well.
"The togetherness this club has holds us in good stead. The players, the fans, everyone here, it added together in me deciding to stay. I had more financially lucrative deals but they saved my career. I wanted to repay them."
