Charly Runciman has agreed a new two-year deal with Widnes Vikings, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2018 season.

The 22 year-old joined the Vikings in August last year from St George-Illawara and has made an impressive start to his Super League career, scoring 16 tries in 19 appearances.

Vikings head coach Denis Betts told the club’s official website: “I am extremely pleased that Charly has decided to commit to us for the next two years, he has been a fantastic acquisition since he arrived at the end of last year.

“He helped us retain our place in Super League with his fantastic performances in the Super 8 Qualifiers.

“Charly took a chance and came over here, we both felt that it was the right decision and he has added massively to everything we do.

“As a group he has settled in brilliantly. He is a fantastic bloke as well as a superb rugby league player.

“We are looking forward to seeing him develop as an even better player over the next couple of years and I am really pleased he is going be spending some very strong formative years with Widnes Vikings.”

Runciman added: “I have enjoyed my time here at Widnes Vikings since arriving last year and I am excited about what is to come in the future here.

“To be part of a club that proving that it is moving forward is really exciting for me and my team mates.”
