Widnes Vikings take on local rivals Warrington Wolves in #TheBigOne at the Halton Stadium on Thursday 13th April with an 8:00pm kick off.

Next Thursday sees the return of Kevin Brown for the first time to his previous Club, whilst Space The Band will also be performing prior to the game and at half-time.

Therefore, to whet the appetite, we take a look back at memorable previous victories over the Wolves since the Club’s return to Super League in 2012. 

2015 - Widnes Vikings 30-10 Warrington Wolves

A Kevin Brown inspired Vikings side were able to overturn Tony Smith’s side at the Select Security Stadium to inflict a third straight loss for the Wolves in Widnes. 

Despite an early score from Ben Westwood, Denis Betts’ side rallied to lead 14-6 at the break, which they would eventually win. 

Tries from Lloyd White, Kevin Brown and braces from Jack Owens and Stefan Marsh helped the Vikings to overcome their local rivals in front of a bumper crowd.

2014 - Widnes Vikings 28-14 Warrington Wolves 

Widnes Vikings produced an emphatic performance to beat Warrington at the Select Security Stadium in July 2014. 

The Vikings opened up a 16-0 lead at the break through tries from Jack Owens, Rhys Hanbury and Paddy Flynn in a dominant first half performance. 

Cameron Phelps further extended the lead, but Warrington tried to respond through Ryan Atkins and Chris Bridge. However, Jack Owens pushed the game beyond the Wolves with a nice try to seal well deserved win for the Vikings.  

2013 - Widnes Vikings 38-22 Warrington Wolves

Rhys Hanbury and Paddy Flynn both scored twice as Widnes Vikings earned their third win of the 2013 season against Warrington Wolves. 

The Vikings had been beaten 62-4 the week before by Wigan Warriors, but Denis Betts’ side responded in the best possible manner with a resounding victory at the Select Security Stadium.

The Vikings led 12-6 at the break through tries from Patrick Ah Van and Rhys Hanbury, then further tries from Lloyd White, Hanbury’s second and a brace from Paddy Flynn enabled the Vikings to overcome the Wolves in front of 9,271 at the Select Security Stadium. 

2013 - Warrington Wolves 6-16 Widnes Vikings

Widnes Vikings produced a brilliant backs against the wall performance to win 14-6 at the Halliwell Jones’ Stadium, despite having Hep Cahill sent off in the first half. 

Simon Grix grabbed an early try for the home side before Cahill saw red for a high shot on Brett Hodgson. Grant Gore was then taken off after suffering a serious knee injury. The Vikings responded well as Jack Owens collected a brilliant Brown kick to reduce the deficit at the break to two points.

After the break, the Vikings continued to rally, and scored 12 unanswered points in the second half through Patrick Ah Van and a second for Jack Owens to extend their lead over the Wolves to 10 points. Warrington threw everything at the Vikings, but Denis Betts’ side defended valiantly to hang on for victory.
