Widnes Vikings’ 2018 recruit, Sam Wilde, is ‘buzzing’ to begin his career with Widnes Vikings.

Wilde put pen-to-paper on a two year deal this month, having impressed on a month’s loan from Warrington Wolves earlier in the season. 

Speaking in the C&C Karalius Suite, where he was a special guest ahead of last weekend’s action, Wilde shared his excitement at the big move.

“The move comes from the time that I spent here earlier in the year,”

“Luckily, I did a good enough job to impress the coaching staff and the Board, and when the opportunity came about, I jumped at it.”

Wilde says that he had no hesitation in joining the Vikings after his successful short loan spell.

“I loved it here,” he said.

“It’s a great set of lads and environment, and I really enjoyed my time here. The decision was pretty easy for me to be honest. I wanted to come here and I’m really glad the deals done now.”

With his 2017 season cut short with injury whilst on loan at London Broncos, the second rower stressed his excitement at getting back fit and ripping into pre-season with his new club. 

“I can’t wait to start training with the boys. I’m absolutely buzzing to get back and start my career fully with Widnes Vikings.”
