St Helens outside back available to Super League clubs

Versatile St Helens outside back Daniel Hill is still looking for a new club after the 2024 season.

Hill can play virtually anywhere in the backs and is a very impressive attacking threat scoring frequently in the lower tiers for Widnes Vikings and Swinton Lions.

He made two first team appearances for St Helens against Castleford Tigers but after his two year deal has now expired and he has not agreed an extension nor a move to a new club.

Clubs like Salford Red Devils and London Broncos could use someone like Hill to add depth to their squad as could someone like Featherstone Rovers in the Championship.

Hill has also been studying for a Sports Fitness and Coaching degree with the Open University.

As a dual-career path, Daniel has been able to be part of the elite First Team environment as a St Helens’ player and manage his educational journey too, further enhancing his employability skills for post-rugby life.

Hill made the move to St Helens at 19. He can play at full back, in the centres and on the wing. He scored on his Widnes debut in their Betfred Challenge Cup defeat to Salford Red Devils earlier this season and has gone on to make a total of six first team appearances for the Vikings before unfortunately missing the end of the season due to injury.

The youngster was born in Warrington and began playing rugby with Newton Storm before moving on to Halton Farnworth Hornets in the Under-12 age group. From there, he joined the Vikings’ Scholarship programme.

In 2020, Hill was also a key member of the club’s Reserves squad and has picked up representative honours with Lancashire Under-18s and gained selection for the National Performance Squad.
