WIDNES Vikings have signed another Warrington Wolves youngster on a short-term loan deal.

Second rower Ellis Robson, who spent time on loan with Widnes in both 2019 and 2020, has rejoined the Championship side on an initial two-week loan deal and joins Wire teammate Eribe Doro in Simon Finnigan's squad.

He is available to feature for the Vikings at Batley Bulldogs on Saturday.

Robson made his Super League debut last year but his only appearance so far in 2021 was in The Wire's Challenge Cup victory at Swinton Lions earlier this month.

Before then, he played and scored in his one and only 2020 appearance for Widnes against Dewsbury.
