Warrington youngster joins Widnes on loan

Widnes have signed young forward Luis Johnson on a one-month loan deal from Warrington. 

The back-rower, who can also play in the front-row, made his first-team debut for the Wolves last season against Wigan Warriors.

A former England Academy international, Johnson arrived at the Halliwell Jones Stadium for the start of the 2018 season on a four-year deal from Castleford Tigers.

Vikings’ performance director Phil Finney commented: “We are pleased to have secured Luis for our squad on a month’s loan.

“Luis arrives at the club highly thought of, and will bring further depth to our squad over the next few weeks. I’m looking forward to seeing Luis in a Widnes shirt.

“I would also personally like to thank Warrington Wolves on behalf of everyone at the Vikings for their support with this loan move.”
