Widnes Vikings forward Hep Cahill has spoken of his pride at reaching 150 career games.

The 30-year old recently put pen-to-paper on a new two-year deal at the Halton Stadium, seeing him commit his future to the Club until the end of the 2019 season. The loose forward passed the 150 career appearance mark against Warrington Wolves on Thursday night, Cahill joined the Vikings in 2012, following spells at Melbourne Storm and Crusaders RL. He has played 125 of his career games at the Club. 

"I’m extremely proud and grateful for the opportunity to hit that milestone," he said.

"For me to hit that 150 games mark whilst playing for the Vikings made it all that more special."

Cahill's teammates arranged a surprise presentation to mark this achievement, ahead of the derby fixture.

"We met before the Warrington game earlier than normal and all the lads were in the gym waiting," he said.

"The Club had organised a video from my family, with them congratulating me. I was totally unaware of that I'd reached this figure, so it caught me by surprise."

"Denis also presented me with a Widnes shirt with the number 150 on the back. It was a reallly nice touch from everyone. I’m just happy and proud, and I feel truly grateful for alll that I've achieved."
