Salford have signed Wales prop Gil Dudson from Widnes on a two-year deal.

Dudson, 28, has spent the past three seasons with the Vikings but left following their relegation from Super League at the end of 2018.

Coach Ian Watson said: “Gil is a player I’ve known for a long through the Welsh National side and is a player who always gives 100%.

“He has a good skill level but more importantly as a front-rower he has an aggression and competitive attitude to win his battles which is what we need in our middles.

“I know Gil will come in and add to the ‘team first’ mentality that we have here at Salford Red Devils.

“I can’t wait for him to get started.”

Dudson started out at Crusaders and spent the 2010 on loan at South Wales Scorpions, before signing for Wigan in 2012.

He has also won 15 caps for Wales.
