Paul Clough celebrated his 200th career appearance by helping Widnes Vikings maintain fourth spot in Super League on Sunday.
The Saints utility forward, who was playing his four game of a season-long loan spell at the Select Security Stadium, emerged from the bench during a 22-18 victory over the Bradford Bulls
Clough had previously featured in 189 games for parent club St Helens, represented England Knights (three games, 2011-2012), and played on four occasions for Whitehaven on dual-registration in 2013.
Nathan Brown told how the close-season arrivals of Kyle Amor, Mose Masoe and Richard Beaumont would have limited Clough’s first-team chances, but described the long-serving prop, 26, as “a Super League player”.
He said: “Cloughie needs to play and has been a great servant.”
“He’s a good player, a good fella and I’m sure he will serve Widnes well. He’s sad to be leaving St Helens but is wrapped to be joining Widnes.”
