Vikings started well, winning a penalty courtesy of a late hit from Cory Paterson, allowing Gareth Hock to breach the Robins' try-line for the first time in the match, breaking off several tackles on the way.

Widnes added a second try shortly after, with Rhys Hanbury getting the ball from a scrum and taking it over the line.

However, the hosts were too strong, adding two more tries to take their total for the day to eight, beating their opponents 44-18.
