Watson happy to finally land Atkin
Salford boss Ian Watson says he's delighted to get a deal over the line to sign Chris Atkin having missed out on the player before.
The half-back will leave his current club Hull KR at the end of the season to link up with the Red Devils for next term.
Watson is pleased to have secured the services of the 26-year-old and has admitted he has tried to sign Atkin on previous occasions.
"I've looked to bring him in before," Watson told the club website. "He's a lightning-fast spine player, who has great ability with ball in hand and poses a big threat to all teams.
"His desire to never quit and love of the contact side of the game are the parts of Chris' play which I value the most.
"In the last two years, he's progressed into an England Knight, where he's played alongside Niall Evalds, which will help them link up in 2020."
