Shaun Briscoe joins Workington after Widnes exit

Championship side Workington have signed former England international full-back Shaun Briscoe on a deal until the end of the season.

The former Wigan, Hull FC and Hull KR player has played more than 200 Super League games, scoring 99 tries.

But the 30-year-old's 18-month spell with Widnes has been plagued by injuries and he left the Vikings by mutual consent on Friday.

Briscoe has only played five Super League games this year.
