Shaun Briscoe leaves Widnes Vikings

29 posts in this topic

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..........

He's signed for Workington.

Still only 30, always been a big fan of his and would've taken him at Bradford for cover alone in a heartbeat.

I'm also surprised Salford wasn't his immediate destination.

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.

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)

Sorry, thought I was bantering with someone with a sense of humour. For the record Wukkinton does not resemble Basra and the residents usually have 5 fingers on each hand. Siddick is a charming fishing village.

Was a very good old fashioned fullback had the pleasure of watching him back in 04, 05 where he was a top support player and safe as houses but unfortunately with injuries and the way the game as changed the role of the fullback hasn't helped saun and I would say now that top end of championship is where he shud b playing.
