The smoke signals are suggesting the Vikings are in phase 2 of financial troubles, which may explain some erratic scores recently, this result will depend on how much the ref allows Sheffield to slow the ruck

Widnes 6-0 up after 4 mins. Short kick-off from the Eagles resulted in Widnes ending their set right by the posts. Eagles struggled to make any ground in their set and didn't get their kick away, so Widnes got possession about 25m out and scored a fairly simple try.

Jayden Hatton in at the corner to get his first try for Widnes.

Sheffield have defended their line very well, but have only completed 1 set so far, abysmal with ball in hand.

10-0 after 15 minutes.

Try for Jack Owens, which he converts to make it 16-0 after 20 minutes. Sheffield simply not in the game at all.

26-0 at Half-time. Eagles have been truly woeful against a team most of whom were playing at Academy level a couple of years ago.

Makes little York’s result last week pretty impressive 


sometimes you have to take a step backwards to move forward

I think it's more that Eagles have been truly terrible, 10+ knock-ons tells its own story. This is basically the same Widnes team that lost to Dewsbury at home and at Batley. I expected York to win, expected Sheffield to win too.

36-0 with a bit over quarter an hour to go.

First time I've seen a penalty given for over-running the shot clock.

Attendance given as 4920. 36-6 FT score.

Got to feel sorry for any Eagles fans here. Their team has defended very well, but their handling has been abysmal. Very difficult to compete when you knock-on 15+ times in a game.

4920 is a very very decent turnout. Considering recent poor form, and the lack of sexy opposition.

Well done to all concerned.

This was a game postponed from when Widnes went into Administration, and advance tickets sold by the old company were valid for tonight. I think there were fewer than that in the ground - 4920 is the total number of tickets that were sold for the game.

Yeah, I estimated around 2,800 inside the ground....
