Whilst Widnes Vikings are taking on Huddersfield Giants in a big Super League clash this Friday (Halton Stadium, 8:00pm) two of the Vikings stars will have the opportunity to enjoy game time this weekend.

Stanton Albert and Brad Walker will be the first players placed with North Wales Crusaders in their away game against Hunslet, as part of the club’s new partnership with the Wrexham based club. This will be Stanton’s first opportunity to play competitive action in the UK and also provide valuable game time for Brad. 

Denis Betts, Head Coach of Widnes Vikings, says, “We have good depth in key areas of our squad and several players in the transition from academy to first team rugby league. It is important that we find ways to give these players the chance to play competitive action and sustain their match sharpness for when they are called upon in the first team.

The new partnership with North Wales Crusaders will provide that opportunity throughout the season, and we are pleased to launch this with the placements for Stanton and Brad. I’m looking forward to seeing how them both progress during the game.”
