Vikings shake up Hull
Widnes avenge 58-10 defeat at the KC Stadium in March
Widnes ended a three-game losing run with a comprehensive 42-16 victory over play-off bound Hull FC.
Full-back Shaun Briscoe starred against his old club, returning after a six match lay-off in devastating form.
He scored two of Widnes' eight tries as his side fought back from a 10-8 deficit midway through the first half.
Hull, who thrashed Widnes 58-10 at the KC Stadium in March, went into the clash defending an eight-year unbeaten record against the Vikings and targeting their fourth win in five games.
But the visitors made a shaky start with both Brett Seymour and Ben Crooks throwing passes straight into touch.
The Airlie Birds recovered their composure to go ahead after seven minutes with Seymour and Ryan McGoldrick combining to send Jordan Turner over.
But Widnes had a Willie Isa try disallowed by video referee Ian Smith before the winger scored a legitimate touchdown after 13 minutes when Tom Briscoe failed to deal with a high kick.
Isa took Shaun Briscoe's pass to cross in the corner before the ex-Hull man cleverly put Paddy Flynn over on his landmark appearance to open up an 8-4 lead.
Hull regained the lead with a well-timed McGoldrick pass putting Joe Westerman through and Jamie Foster tagged on the conversion.
Shaun Briscoe was continually prominent against his old club and he grabbed the first of two touchdowns in two minutes just before the break.
Briscoe fired Widnes back in front when he was quickest to react to Hanbury's kick and Danny Craven landed the straightforward conversion to edge his side ahead 14-10.
The Vikings extended the lead when Frank Winterstein scored from another kick on the last tackle to make it 20-10.
Hull needed a good start to the second half but it was Widnes who went further ahead when Willie Manu failed to gather Horne's pass with Craven hacking the loose ball forward to score and stretch the lead to 24-10.
Hull's problems mounted up when Isa notched his second try courtesy of Hanbury's inside pass with McShane booting the goal.
Hull then lost youngster Tom Lineham who was helped off after a heavy tackle with the incident placed on report.
Tom Briscoe was denied a try for Hull as they battled to get back into the contest, but Aaron Heremaia took advantage of some good fortune to notch Hull's third try after 57 minutes with Foster's conversion closing the gap to 30-16.
McGoldrick was placed on report for a high tackle on Hanbury and Hull were let down by elementary handling errors and lack of discipline.
Shaun Briscoe scored his second try from another inside pass from Hanbury 10 minutes from time after a Tom Briscoe mistake with McShane's conversion opening up a 20-point lead with eight minutes left.
Hanbury then claimed the Vikings' eighth try to extend the lead.
