Widnes release promising forward

Widnes have confirmed that young forward Brad Walker has left the club.

The promising back rower has made 40 appearances for the club since his Super League debut in 2016

A Cumbrian native, Walker will now make the move back to full-time rugby after signing with an unknown Super League club.

“It’s always hard moving on but at this stage of my career, I think to have the chance to go back to Super League is something I couldn’t turn down.

“Thank you to everyone at Widnes Vikings, as well as the fans for their support over the years.

“This place took a chance on me and gave me my opportunity in professional rugby league, and I will never forget what this club has done for me.”
