Widnes Vikings have signed hooker Aiden Roden from Wigan Warriors on an initial two-week loan deal.
The 21-year-old will join up with the Vikings squad ahead of this Sunday’s Championship clash with Batley Bulldogs.
Blackpool-born Roden represented Lancashire against the Australian Schoolboys in 2018, and has first-team experience with Wigan having featured in their pre-season friendly against Salford Red Devils in March.
The hooker also has experience in the Betfred Championship, having played on loan at Whitehaven earlier this year.
On joining Widnes on loan, Roden said: “I’m excited at the prospect of getting more game time and showing everyone what I can do. I’d like to thank Wigan and Widnes for the opportunity. I can’t wait to get started.”
