WIDNES maintained their excellent run of form with another outstanding victory over Wilmslow, whom they now overtake in the league table.
The win sets them up nicely in time for next week’s clash juicy away at Vale of Lune, who themselves were beaten at Sale.
Widnes were irresistible in the first half and scored three tries from man of the match Jonny Lowe (2) and Gareth Riley to lead 15-0.
The game was effectively wrapped up as a contest inside the first ten minutes of the second half when both Paul O’Connor and Steve Reynolds crossed for tries, before Arnie Haydock crashed over with just four minutes left.
Widnes face the toughest of challenges when they travel to take on second placed Vale of Lune at Powder House Lane in North One West on Saturday.
Vale have started the season in fine style with a series of big victories, although they slipped up at surprisingly at Leigh and were beaten narrowly at Sale last weekend.
However, it should be a cracking game, as both sides like to throw the ball around, and if the contest is anything like the two games last season, then the supporters should be in for a feast of rugby.
Widnes will have nothing to fear in this one though, and their performances in the last two games in particular will see them travel up the M6 in buoyant mood.
