Playing career[edit]

He is currently playing for Widnes, after 10 successful seasons with Warrington. He started the 2008 campaign in superb form, scoring two tries; ultimately being Warrington's first try scorer of the 2008 season. However, during the second match of the season, away to St Helens, he was carried off with a ruptured achilies tendon.

He has been named in the Ireland training squad for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup.[2]

In November 2010 he opted out of representing England in the Four Nations due to his wife Kirsten Kimberlee giving birth to their first child, Anais Elise.

He was selected to play for England against France in the one-off test in 2010.[3]

It was confirmed on 14 July 2015 that Bridge signed a two-year deal to play for Widnes from the start of the 2016 Super League season.[4]
