White the latest Viking to pen new contract

Wales hooker Lloyd White has signed a new two-year deal at Widnes.

White, 25, is currently in his third season with the Vikings, and becomes the sixth player to pen fresh terms at the club in the past 10 days.

He said: “This year you can see a big difference in us as a team. Since day one the bond has always been strong but this year we have really kicked on.

“Denis is doing a great job in developing young players and he’s really helped me to become a more rounded player. Things are going really well at the moment and the Club is a great place to be around. We are looking forward to really pushing on even further as we head into the next stage of the season.

“From a person viewpoint, I knew that I was going into my final year of contract at Widnes and I wanted to start strongly and I feel like I have done. I’ve had a few injuries but I feel I’m over them now and improving. The more game time I get will help me do that and I’m pleased I’ll be here for another couple of years.”

White, who played for Wales at last year’s World Cup, has made 48 appearances for Widnes.

Coach Denis Betts said: “Lloyd’s potential is limitless. I’m really excited about the next couple of years for him as I believe we will see a really good player emerging. He’s already a good player but there’s so much more to come from him.”
