Official Statement

Tonight Head Coach, Scott McKenzie, made the decision to withdraw the Widnes Wild from the game against the Deeside Dragons, as he felt that his players would be at risk of serious injury had they continued to play the game.

Lee Kemp has been taken to hospital with a serious head injury and we will post an update on his condition when he has been fully assessed by the doctors at the hospital.

Greg Ruxton has also suffered a serious injury and is unlikely to play again this season.

We would ask Wild fans to show restraint when discussing tonight’s game on social media.
