Patrick Ah Van struck twice in less than three minutes near the end to give the Vikings victory

Ah Van struck twice in less than three minutes near the end to give the Vikings victory in a game in which they had trailed 18-4 midway through the first half. It was 13th time lucky as the Cheshire side had gained just a point - a 25-25 draw in 2005 - from their previous dozen visits to the West Yorkshire venue dating back to September 1990.

Rhys Hanbury and Stefan Marsh also claimed two tries apiece as Widnes wiped away the memories of a string of near misses to claim their second away win of the season and Jack Owens added the extras. Adam Sidlow, Keith Lulia, James Donaldson, Elliot Kear and Michael Platt crossed over for the Bulls with Luke Gale on target with four conversions.
