Eurosport

Josh Charnley starred for Wigan with three tries and seven successful kicks at goal, with Brett Finch adding two more tries and Michael McIlorum, George Carmont, Paul Prescott, Joe Gelling and Sam Tomkins also touching down.

After conceding three early tries Widnes briefly looked like getting back into the match as Ben Cross scored, but Wigan scored two more to lead 28-12 at the break despite Joe Mellor's effort just before half-time.

And Wigan cut loose in the second half to avenge their shock defeat by Widnes in March.
