Gareth Hock: Widnes' new signing explains Wigan departure

Gareth Hock tells BBC Radio Merseyside that playing under Denis Betts was one of the main reasons for his decision to leave Wigan Warriors and join Widnes Vikings on a season-long loan.

The England back-rower, who recently had shoulder surgery, adds that he has returned to full training and hopes to have made his debut for Widnes by the middle of February.
