Widnes sign Wire duo on loan

Widnes have signed Warrington duo Sam Wilde and Jack Johnson on loan for four weeks.

Second rower Wilde made his Warrington debut in July 2015 in a home win over Wigan and has since made 18 first-team appearances including last year’s Grand Final at Old Trafford.

He has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Wire this season.

Full-back Johnson (above) made his first-team debut at home to Hull in September 2015 and has gone on to make 11 appearances including four in 2017.

Widnes’ boss Denis Betts said: “We are pleased to have secured Sam and Jack at a time when we are facing injury challenges and need additional cover.

“Both players are talented, have a number of positive playing qualities and will enhance the squad during their time here.

“I would like to thank Warrington Wolves for their support with these loan moves.”
