London Broncos forward Jordan Williams has joined Championship club Widnes Vikings on an initial two-week loan deal with immediate effect.

The 27-year-old is in contention to play in Widnes’ upcoming fixtures against Dewsbury Rams and Halifax Panthers.

Widnes coach Allan Coleman said: “Jordan is a brilliant acquisition for us, he was one of the best props in the Championship last year for London Broncos.

“He’s very aggressive, a fit and athletic middle. He’ll bring us a lot of bite and toughness but also provide some speed. I’m delighted to get him over the line and I’m looking forward to seeing him make his debut for Widnes Vikings.”

Meanwhile, young half-back Kai Morgan has returned to his parent club Salford Red Devils from his loan spell in the Championship with Swinton Lions. The 20-year-old played in Swinton’s win over Widnes last weekend.
