Next up, is winger Owen Buckley. 

Age: 18
Position: Winger
School: St Peter and Paul School
Community Club: West Bank Bears/Halton Farnworth Hornets

Grant Gore, Head Coach of the Vikings’ U19s says, “Owen is a player who certainly knows his way to the try line.

"He is reliable under the high ball and doesn’t shy away from a carry to help out the team. He has massive potential and I think he is only recently starting to believe in himself. 

"He can play anywhere across the back line and I’m looking forward to seeing him progress even further next season.
