Davies departs Widnes
Widnes Vikings have announced that former Wigan Warriors forward Ben Davies has left the club by mutual consent with immediate effect.
The 23-year-old prop made 24 appearances for the Vikings in their first season back in Super League in 2012 but has played just once this year and in April joined South Wales Scorpions on a month's loan.
Widnes chief executive said: "Ben's playing opportunities have been limited this year and we have agreed to an early release from his existing contract, which will enable him to pursue other options that will provide him with more regular playing opportunities.
"We thank Ben for his contribution to the Vikings and wish him the best of luck in his future career."
