Ottawa Aces have announced the signings of Jay and Ted Chapelhow from Widnes.

The 24-year-old props have both made more than 50 appearances each for the Vikings since making their first-team debuts.

Jay and Ted are the latest signings for the Aces, with the Canadian club having already confirmed the signings of Louis Jouffret, Tom Gilmore and Matty Fozard.

The Chapelhow twins said: “We are both made up to be signing for Ottawa Aces.

“It’s a chance to be apart of this team from the beginning, and an opportunity that really excites us both.

“We cannot wait to meet up with the lads and get started. We are both looking forward to going over to Ottawa and meeting all the fans over there.”

Ottawa coach Laurent Frayssinous said: “To be able to sign players of James and Ted Chapelhow’s calibre shows everyone how appealing our project is.

“They will add size, power and strength in the middle of the park for us. They are great people as well, and I can’t wait to start working with them.”
