Warrington have confirmed the signings of centres Anthony Gelling and Keanan Brand from Widnes.

Gelling, 28, has signed a two-year contract with the Wolves after scoring 11 tries in 18 games for the Vikings.

Brand, 20, has penned a three-year contract with Warrington until the end of 2022. He scored nine tries in 32 games for Widnes this year.

Warrington coach Steve Price said: “Both players will give us depth to our squad. Anthony comes to us after previously playing in the NRL, he comes on good recommendations from people that I trust.

“He is a big, athletic, strong centre, who carries the ball well and has a sound knowledge of the game. He comes to us with previous Grand Final and World Club Challenge winning experience. He is a big personality and it will be great to have him around the team.

“Keanan is a young player with a lot of potential. He was named the Vikings’ players’ player of the year. He is a centre who is also capable of playing wing and has the ability to beat people with ball in hand but is also strong in defence.

“He has a bright future ahead of him and I am looking forward to working with him and developing his game.”
