Widnes head coach Denis Betts hailed his side's defensive efforts after they saw off the challenge of the London Broncos 28-14 at The Stoop.

Widnes raced into an 18-0 interval lead and then contained the hosts in a see-saw second half to get their Super League campaign off to a flyer.

Betts said: "Defensively we were outstanding today and that was the big factor for us.

"We had to get through a lot of work and I was really pleased to see how hard the players worked for each other.

"That was really important for us as I did not think we did that well attacking-wise. But when we did create opportunities we took them.

"The key though was the attitude and that is something we are trying to breed among all the players at the club.

"We do have good players that are going to come back from injury, but everyone is fighting for their shirt at the moment and that is great to see."

Broncos coach Tony Rea added: "There are a different set of expectations at the club now compared to last season. We want those expectations, but we have to learn to deal with them.

"We didn't deal with them today and I was surprised by the error count. We must not dwell too much on this result, as all this tells us is how we performed today.

"We have to take a look at the game, look for solutions to the problems and find those solutions fast."
