Match Official: P Bentham

Braces from Jamie Shaul, Tom Briscoe and Jacob Miller helped Hull FC notch their first Super League win in six matches against Widnes Vikings at the KC Stadium.

Last Sunday, the Black and Whites booked their place in the Challenge Cup final with a 16-12 win against Warrington, but in the league they had lost five games on the bounce.

Hull took an early lead with a Daniel Holdsworth long-range try before Widnes hit straight back with an effort by Cameron Phelps. FC regained their six-point advantage when Briscoe crossed in the corner.

Brown scored for the Vikings to level, before three quick tries for Hull by Kirk Yeaman and Shaul (two) gave FC a 18-point half-time lead.

Two Miller tries just after the hour sealed the game for FC, before Briscoe and Richard Whiting added scores.

Hull hit the front early on as Holdsworth picked up the pieces from a Brown knock-on and raced 80 metres to score against the run of play, before Danny Tickle converted his score.

Widnes hit straight back as an FC error from the restart gave Patrick Ah Van the chance to neatly drop-off Phelps for the score in the corner. Jack Owens failed with the conversion.

Owens was taken off the field for Widnes with a nasty looking head injury before Hull forced a drop-out with a Miller grubber kick. From the restart FC probed and they went over in the left corner with Briscoe after excellent hands.

In the 26th minute Widnes levelled the game with Brown touching down Joe Mellor's grubber kick. The game wasn't level for long though after Ellis picked off an interception and after finding Miller, the Australian supplied Yeaman for the finish in the corner. Tickle converted.

With an hour played, Briscoe's rampaging run set up Shaul to shoot through the line and score from 40 metres before Tickle added the extra.

Shaul added another moment's later showing great support play as he latched onto Whiting's break to grab his second, and give FC an 18-point lead.

An error from Widnes at the start of the second period gave the Airlie Birds the chance to further extend their lead. Back-to-back penalties followed and FC added to their lead with a Tickle penalty goal.

In the second period a great long break from Briscoe was supported by Miller, who then finished off the try in style with a diving finish in the corner to complete a 60-metre two man effort.

Miller was at it again when he broke down field exposing some tired Vikings defence and, after passing to Shaul, the full-back returned the favour to put Miller in for his second.

Briscoe scorched home for his second try as he showed great pace to out run Rhys Handbury. Whiting added to the Vikings' misery when he span in the tackle to bring up the 50-points for Hull, before Aaron Heremaia, Joe Arundel and Mark O'Meley completed the visitors' misery.
