Denis Betts leaves Widnes Vikings as head coach

Denis Betts has left his position as head coach of Widnes Vikings.

Betts has been in charge of the Vikings since 2010 but has left the club following a run of poor form.

Widnes were forced to play in the Qualifiers in 2017 after finishing the regular season bottom of Super League and the Vikings have struggled again this season.

The Vikings are currently bottom of the table having picked up just three wins. Widnes suffered a 19-6 defeat to Wakefield on Friday and have now lost their last eight games in all competitions.
