Widnes sign Shane Grady

Widnes have signed forward Shane Grady from Halifax on a two-year deal.

The 29-year-old started his career at the Vikings before enjoying spells in Australia, London, Dewsbury and Halifax, making almost 200 career appearances.

Grady said: “I’m buzzing and I am excited to come back. I loved my time here the first time round all those years ago and I am excited to come back.

“As soon as I found out that Widnes were going part-time, my full concentration was on returning to the club, and I am made up to finally sign.

“Part-time rugby suits me down to the ground but before anything else, I am a Widnes fan. I travelled down to Wembley to watch the lads, and to play for your hometown club is special.

“I didn’t think it would ever happen again, so to get that opportunity to come back and sign a two-year deal is a dream come true.”
