Isa the latest Widnes player to pen new deal

Utility forward Willie Isa has signed a new two-year deal with Widnes.

Isa, 25, is the ninth player to sign new terms with the Vikings in recent weeks.

He said: “I’m really excited about the future at Widnes.

“I’m really enjoying my footy here – it’s a great Club and one which is on a real upward curve.

“We’ve got a great bunch of players here and we are all committed to getting the Club back to where it should be, and that’s right at the top of the game.

“The supporters have been great with me too and I’m enjoying the work off the field in the community. It’s just a good time to be involved as we really look to get to the next level this year.”

The former Castleford and Melbourne Kiwi-Samoan joined Widnes as an outside back ahead of the 2012, but made the transition to the forwards last year.

Coach Denis Betts said: “I’m really pleased Willie has signed. I’ve been impressed with his contribution to our unit this year. He’s come off the wing/centre and into the forward pack, essentially like a loose-forward, and he’s done a tremendous job.

“His energy and enthusiasm around the place is really infectious and you can see that by the way he plays the game. “He’s really committed and the way he lives his life off the field is the way he lives it on it and he’s a real pro. He wants to be the best he can be and he’s a great personality at the Vikings and we are pleased to have him here in our environment.”
