Biography

Widnes-born Joe began playing rugby with the local Moorfield club before eventually joining the Widnes Scholarship Programme at the age of 14, progressing through the Academy system to captain the Under 19’s in 2017. ‘Joey’ pays tribute to the support of his family and the input of all the coaches he has worked with as he named his senior debut against Leeds Rhinos, an ambition held from the age of 6, in the 2018 Qualifiers as a career highlight, along with the 1895 semi-final victory at Leigh. With the added experience of 16 appearances in 2018 for North Wales Crusaders, including his first senior try, he went on to claim 7 tries in 25 appearances for the Vikings in 2019. After appearing in each of the Vikings’ 7 games in 2020 Joe claimed a regular starting berth in the Vikings’ first team in 2021 as they sought an early return to Super League. Away from rugby Joe has gained a degree in Construction Project Management and is a keen supporter of Manchester United.
