Widnes Vikings fullback, Rhys Hanbury, is one of eight key players returning for the Vikings as they launch their Super 8s The Qualifiers campaign on Friday against Warrington Wolves (Halton Stadum, kick off 8pm).

The talented Australian shared his excitement and confidence ahead of the game.

“I’ve been on the side-lines for too long. I thought I was only going to be out for six weeks and it ended up being a longer layoff than expected, so it’s great to be making my return.”

“The spine of the team is coming back for the derby. It’s a full-strength team taking on Warrington at home, and training has been good, so we’re feeling confident.”

Hanbury believes that The Qualifiers offer the opportunity for the Vikings to put the challenges of the 2017 Betfred Super League Season behind them.

“it’s a new start; we’re starting the season again and it begins against Warrington on Friday night.”

“I’m quite happy with the fixtures we’ve got. We’ve got a decent run and are looking forward to the campaign. We’re not looking too far beyond the Warrington game though – it should be a great contest.”
