Vidot’s Exit

The unexpected move by Brisbane Broncos winger, Daniel Vidot, has raised a lot of questions as to why exactly the 25-year old signed with English Super League Club, Salford Red Devils.

Vidot has clarified the move was entirely a family-based decision as he chose to support his family.

Vidot joined Brisbane at the end of 2013 having previously played for NRL sides St George Illawarra and Canberra, with whom he finished the 2010 season as top try scorer.

Now after seven years in the NRL, Vidot left the Broncos for the same reason he left the Canberra Raiders, to provide for his mother, stepfather and four siblings, one of whom has been diagnosed with autism.

The Samoan-born winger says he grew up poor and that was his fuel for motivation.

Vidot has signed a two year contract with Salford, beginning this year. The influential 25-year old will endure Salford’s upgrading with Justin Carney and Mark Flanagan who have already been recruited.
