Widnes Vikings players Gil Dudson and Owen Farnworth have signed new three-year deals, keeping them at the Super League club until the end of 2021.

Wales international Dudson, 27, has made 83 appearances for the Vikings since joining them from Wigan Warriors in January 2015.

Fellow prop Farnworth, 19, made his debut against Leeds last season and has featured twice for the senior team.

Meanwhile, boss Denis Betts says Lloyd White will be out for up to 12 weeks.

The hooker, 29, suffered a pectoral injury in Widnes' 23-20 home Challenge Cup defeat by Leeds Rhinos on Friday.
