Widnes Vikings have completed the signing of Steve Hampson, the 35-year-old former Great Britain full-back released by Salford Reds in the close season. Hampson, formerly of Wigan, had a spell as player-coach with the French club Cannes after leaving Salford before moving to Treorchy, the Welsh rugby union club.

Steve Wagner, the Featherstone chairman, is to join the Rugby Football League's board of directors. He had initially been nominated by the Association of First and Second Division Clubs to be their representative, but was turned down by the Board who subsequently came under pressure to reconsider the matter.
