Warrington looking to get off the mark at their bitter rivals


Widnes Vikings welcome Warrington Wolves in a match that will bear more significance than the usual Cheshire derby.

The match sees Widnes hope to inflict a third straight defeat on their neighbours. A start that not many would have predicted.

The Vikings on the other hand, have started with one win against Catalans Dragons and one very narrow defeat at Castleford Tigers, giving fans plenty of cause for optimism after pre season fears of another relegation battle.

The home side have made three changes following last weeks defeat with Danny Craven, MacGraff Leuluai and Brad Walker all come into the squad as Wellington Albert, Charly Runciman and Lloyd White all drop out.

Meanwhile, Warrington welcome Dom Crosby back into the squad after recovering from recent shoulder surgery. Harvey Livett also comes in for the injured Tyrone Roberts.


The game kicks off at 7.35pm and the referee will be Phil Bentham.
