Rhys Hanbury and Paddy Flynn scored two tries apiece as Widnes shocked Warrington 38-22 in their Good Friday derby clash.

The Vikings also ran in tries from Patrick Ah Van and Lloyd White, while Ah Van kicked seven goals.

The Wolves may have been expecting a comfortable afternoon following Wigan's 62-4 defeat of Widnes last week, but the Vikings had other ideas and constructed a deserved victory on a dominant forward pack.

Widnes edged the first half 12-6 and it was deserved as they played the better rugby with Warrington coming up with a host of uncharacteristic errors.

Tries from Ah Van and Hanbury had inched Widnes ahead at half-time, with only a Chris Riley effort in response from the Wolves after what was a poor 40 minutes from the Challenge Cup holders.

However the Wolves came out clearly fired-up and Rhys Evans brought the teams level before Richie Myler put Warrington 18-12 in front.

Widnes hit back, as Flynn squeezed in at the corner.

The goal kickers had not missed by this stage and Ah Van struck a penalty goal to extend his haul after Gareth Carvell was penalised for a swinging arm.

That penalty inspired Widnes and gave them confidence to press on, and Cahill sent in Hanbury for a well-worked try, and then Chris Dean scorched through to send in Lloyd White for a decisive score.

Riley hauled one back for Warrington but it was merely a consolation, as Flynn had the final say at the death to put the gloss on victory for the jubilant hosts.
