Super League side Widnes Vikings have signed Scotland prop Sam Brooks on a two-year deal after a successful trial.

The 22-year-old was with Whitehaven in the Championship last term and could play for them again in the upcoming season as part of a dual registration deal between the clubs.

The former Wigan youngster has also had a previous stint at Rochdale.

"It's an exciting opportunity to go full time with a professional outfit," he told the club website.external-link
