Widnes have signed Warrington centre Chris Bridge on a two-year deal that will take effect after the current campaign.

Bridge, who turned 31 earlier this month, becomes the first signing by Vikings coach Denis Betts for 2016 and will be a straight replacement for Australian centre Cameron Phelps, who is leaving the club at the end of the season.

Bridge, who joined the Wolves from Bradford in 2005, was a member of their back-to-back Challenge Cup-winning teams in 2009 and 2010 and is currently enjoying a testimonial to mark his decade of service to the club.
