Leeds Rhinos have returned to winning ways in the Super League with a 52-36 victory at Widnes Vikings.

The visitors ran in 10 tries but had to withstand a late fightback from their opponents to claim the points.

Joel Moon and Liam Sutcliffe both scored two tries each for Leeds in the first half, while Rob Burrow and Zak Hardaker also went over.

Meanwhile, Hardaker converted five of his side's scores before Jack Owens added the extras to Kevin Brown's try on the stroke of half time for Widnes.

Ben Jones-Bishop touched down early in the second half for Leeds and they extended their advantage thanks to another Burrow score as Hardaker converted.

Tries from Gareth Hock and Brown started the Widnes comeback before Kallum Watkins kept the scoreboard ticking over for Leeds with a score on 65 minutes.

Rhys Hanbury and Hock scored in the final five minutes, while Owens converted both times to end the match with 12 points to his name.
