Match Official: J Child

Widnes Vikings pulled off a derby shock as they toppled high-flying Warrington Wolves in front of a capacity crowd at the Stobart Stadium.

Rhys Hanbury and Paddy Flynn crossed twice apiece and Pat Ah Van landed seven goals and a try himself, but it was the power in the pack from Hep Cahill, Jon Clarke and the outstanding Gareth Hock that gave Widnes the edge and paved the way for victory.

Warrington did not bring their best game and the Vikings made them pay as they climbed to ninth place in Super League table.

The cynics were anticipating a derby demolition from the Wolves following Wigan Warriors’ 62-4 defeat of Widnes last week, but the Vikings had other ideas and stunned Tony Smith's side.

The hosts edged the first half 12-6 and it was deserved as they played the better rugby with Warrington coming up with a host of uncharacteristic errors.

Tries from Ah Van and Hanbury had inched Widnes ahead at half-time, with only a Chris Riley effort in response from the Wolves after what was a poor 40 minutes from the Challenge Cup holders.

However, after a probable half-time ear-bashing from Smith, the Wolves came out hunting and Rhys Evans brought the teams level before Richie Myler put Warrington 18-12 in front.

Undeterred and continuing to impress, Widnes hit back as Flynn squeezed in at the corner.

The goal kickers had not missed by that stage and Ah Van struck a penalty goal to extend his haul after Gareth Carvell was penalised for a swinging arm.

That inspired Widnes and gave them confidence to press on; Cahill sent in Hanbury for a well-worked try and then Chris Dean scorched through to send in Lloyd White for a decisive score.

Riley hauled one back for Warrington, but it was merely a consolation as Flynn had the final say at the death to put the gloss on victory for the jubilant hosts.
