Danny Hill is a rugby league player who currently plays for Widnes Vikings and formerly of Hull F.C. and Wigan Warriors.

Hill started out his career at West Hull before joining up with Hull F.C. and joining their scholarship scheme. He was highly rated by the Hull club and showed a lot of power and aggression[citation needed] that got him a call up to the England Schoolboys & Academy that toured Australia in the 2001 season.

Hill was signed by Brian Noble of Wigan last season who claims Danny is a 'quality young player' with Hill being just 21 years of age with plenty of experience already. Hull fans where unhappy at Hill's departure as he was rated highly within the club but many fans saw him to be too injury prone for their liking and Wigan experienced this problem last season with Danny missing the most crucial part of the 2006 season with the Warriors as they battled against relegation.

Luckily for Hill, Wigan survived relegation from the Super League and he can concentrate on making a big impact on the 2007 season for the Warriors.

Hill went to Hull Kingston Rovers on 12 April 2007 on a month's Loan.

Danny Hill failed to break into the Wigan first team during 2007 and on 28 November 2007 it was announced that he would be released from his contract so that he could get more first team experience and so that Wigan could afford another player under the salary cap.[1] On the 29 November 2007 Widnes Vikings announced they had signed Danny Hill along with Jim Gannon from Hull Kingston Rovers.[2]
