The 23-year-old joins the Vikings from Queensland Cup champions PNG Hunters after impressing with a series of powerful performances in his country’s run to the quarter-finals of the World Cup.

Widnes head coach Denis Betts is excited to see Albert line up alongside compatriot and outside back Kato Ottio, who joined from Canberra Raiders earlier this month.

Betts said: “Through seeing him firsthand at the Rugby League World Cup and having the opportunity to speak to people I respect who have coached and played alongside him, I identified that Wellington would have the right qualities to enhance our team.

“I am delighted that we have been able to secure his move.
