Rangi Chase: Salford signing humbled by horse accolade

After joining Salford from Castleford, England international Rangi Chase tells BBC North West Tonight it was an honour to have a horse named after him by Red Devils owner Dr Marwan Koukash.

Rangi Chase - the horse - finished third in a race at Haydock Park around an hour after Chase - the rugby league player - was confirmed as one of 12 new signings by Salford.

The 27-year-old admits it was a relief to finally complete a move following months of speculation about his future at Castleford.
