Widnes Vikings have signed Scotland international hooker Liam Hood from fellow Championship side Leigh Centurions for 2019.

The 26-year-old previously played for Leeds Rhinos and Salford Red Devils and has played seven times for Scotland.

"I had a few options but Widnes was the one that stuck out to me," Hood told the club's official website.

"It's a great club and I want to help push this club back to where it should be - in Super League."

The signing comes after hooker Danny Walker left the Vikings to join hometown side Warrington on a three-year deal.

He continued: "The club wants to breed the young lads into the team and mix them with the more experienced players and push to finish in that top spot.

"I'm hoping I can add to that and bring something from hooker to this team, and show the Widnes fans what I'm about on a weekly basis."
