Widnes release Haggerty and Kite

Widnes have confirmed the release of forwards Kurt Haggerty and John Kite.

Haggerty, 23, came up to Super League with the club from the Championship, and scored nine tries in 42 appearances for the Vikings after joining midway through 2010.

Kite arrived at the Stobart Stadium part way through the 2012 season, having previously played in the NRL with Canterbury and Melbourne.

He went on to make 15 appearances, but the club have decided not to renew his deal.

Director of Rugby Paul Cullen said: “Ultimately, in sport decisions such as this have to be made.

“We thank both of the players concerned for their efforts in a Vikings shirt and wish them the best of luck in the next chapter of their rugby league careers.”
