A young RAF senior aircraftman has been handed a professional contract by Super League side Salford Red Devils.
It's believed to be the first ever professional Super League contract given to a serviceman.
Weapons technician SAC Jordan Andrade will be joining Salford Red Devils next week as they prepare for the new season.
Andrade, a prop forward from Huddersfield, has been one of the RAF and UK Armed Forces' top players for several seasons.
He's also been a stand-out performer for Oxford Rugby League in Championship 1.
The RAF has agreed to give the airman a two-year sabbatical to represent the service.
