Widnes Vikings have confirmed that Shaun Briscoe has left the club with immediate effect by mutual consent.
Vikings CEO James Rule commented: "Shaun has had limited playing opportunities this year and we have therefore agreed to an early release from his existing contract. This will enable him to pursue other options that will provide him with more regular playing opportunities.
"We thank Shaun for his contribution to the Vikings and wish him the best of luck in his future career."

Just to be clear, that is twice James Rule has become chief executive of a club then in his first year let Briscoe go. It was after he had taken up the same position at Hull they decided not to renew Briscoe's contract.

But he admitted in a local rag that he's been fit all season, just Betts wasn't picking him. There has been rumours of a fall out between the two..........

Just to be clear, that is twice James Rule has become chief executive of a club then in his first year let Briscoe go. It was after he had taken up the same position at Hull they decided not to renew Briscoe's contract.

Hull didn't let Briscoe go. They offered him a contract that, in Shaun's eyes, wasn't enough. They then allowed him to talk to other clubs. After this he apparently decided he'd rather stay at Hull but Hull had already allocated some of his contract money elsewhere. (Must be summat in the name "Briscoe" here...)

 

So he ended up at Hull KR.

 

Feel for the lad really, one of the bravest and biggest hearted competitors around but his body simply couldn't cope with the batterings he constantly put it through in this sport of ours.

 

Hope things go well for him and his family at Workington and wherever else he goes.

In the way that Basra is more attractive than Mogadishu
Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

A really gutsy player, hope he has better luck at Workington.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Workington, where you can count half a dozen eggs on the fingers of one hand. I'm from St Helens and live in Stockdalewath (look it up it doesn't resemble siddick)
