Declan Hulme extends Widnes Vikings deal

Widnes utility Declan Hulme has signed a 12-month contract extension at the Vikings.

The versatile back, 21, has scored four tries in four Super League appearances this season, and scored two in their run to the Challenge Cup semi-finals.

Hulme has spent time on dual registration duty in the Championship over the last two years.

“He has so much potential and I am looking at developing that and making him the best player he can be,” coach Denis Betts said.

Hulme said: “I’m looking to build on the starts I’ve had this year and really kick on next season, as well as finishing the season strongly if Denis calls on me.”
