Gray Viane (born 19 May 1982 in Otahuhu, New Zealand) is a rugby league player.

Playing career[edit]

Viane played junior rugby league for Minto Cobras and attended Sarah Redfern High (a renowned rugby league school in Minto). He was selected to represent the Australian schoolboys rugby union team.

Viane began his career in Australia with Wests Tigers playing 10 NRL first grade games, before moving to England and signing in 2004 with St. Helens. Viane managed four games in total at St. Helens, scoring one try. The Samoan moved onto Widnes Vikings a season later and featured more prominently in the clubs bid for Super League survival. He led the scoring sheet with thirteen tries in his stint in Widnes.

Widnes were relegated at the end of the season. He then moved onto the newly promoted Castleford Tigers in 2006 and had a good spell at the club playing 27 games and once again being the leading try scorer with 14 tries.[1] He moved to Salford to replace the retired Junior Langi and was given the number 15 shirt, playing 9 games with 2 tries.

Gray Viane is known for his tough defence and prolific try scoring. He is a Samoan international.[2]
