Ellis Robson joins on loan

Widnes Vikings can announce the signing of Warrington Wolves second rower Ellis Robson on an initial two-week loan ahead of this Saturday’s Betfred Championship clash with Batley Bulldogs.

Robson will be a familiar face to Vikings supporters having featured for the club on dual-registration during both the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

The Warrington forward is a welcome addition to the Widnes back row ahead of the weekend’s trip to the Fox’s Biscuits Stadium, strengthening the options available to Simon Finnigan.

Ellis goes straight into contention for the 21-man squad for Saturday’s fixture, which will be announced at midday.
