Joseph Patrick Mellor (born 21 November 1990) is a professional rugby league player who currently plays for Widnes Vikings in Super League. He previously played for Wigan Warriors. His usual position is Scrum-half. He is Co-Captain for Widnes Vikings.
Mellor signed as a professional for Wigan from Warrington-based amateur side Latchford Albion. In 2009, Mellor was awarded Man-of-the-Match in the Reserve Grand Final following a fantastic performance. An injury-plagued 2010 meant limited appearances in Wigan's junior teams, however, he did play in the Under-20 Cup Final win over St Helens. He made his Super League début in rugby league whilst on loan at Harlequins in 2011's Super League XVI, coming off the bench in a 27-16 win over St. Helens in round five.
On his return to Wigan, Joe Mellor was sent on loan to Widnes along with Dom Crosby and Logan Tomkins. Mellor featured at stand-off for the Chemics, scoring tries in the home fixtures against Barrow and Toulouse Olympique and a brace away at Barrow.
Mellor was once again loaned to Widnes in 2012, and joined the club on a permanent contract after being released by Wigan at the end of 2012. Since permanently joining the Vikings, Mellor has improved over his years at the club, being regarded as one of the best players in Super League.
