Widnes Vikings launch radical away kit

Widnes Vikings have launched a radical away kit alongside their traditional black and white home strip.

The away strip features green bands moving away from the traditional red alternate kit.

The news was released alongside a motivational tweet put out by the Widnes club: “We need to strike change. We need to push boundaries. We need to determine our own future. We need to do this together. Our 2022 kits have landed.”

Modelled by former Super League pair Jack Owens and Danny Craven, the Vikings look increasingly suave in both strips as they head into the 2022 Championship season with very few backing them to do any damage.

They will have to contend with the likes of Featherstone, relegated Leigh, Bradford, York, Halifax and Newcastle for that elusive spot in Super League.

Under head coach Simon Finnigan, the Vikings are trying to rebuild after an uncertain few years.

When Finnigan took the role in 2020, he said: “It is a massive honour, I feel privileged to get this opportunity and it obviously means a lot to me. Yesterday was 19 years to the day that I came over to England, and I have been in Widnes ever since. It is a privilege and an honour to be named head coach of the club.

“I have always had an association with Widnes, and I have got that history with the club. I live in the town, this is my home. When the opportunity came up it was something I wanted to do straight away because this club means a lot to me. I can see the project that all of us here at the club are working to achieve and it makes it a really exciting time to be a part of that moving forward.
