Magic Weekend 2018 will take place on the 19th and 20th May in Newcastle. With the North-East stadium generating the three highest attendances since the event began in 2007, St James’ Park has been a real hit with supporters. The Vikings supporters will again cheer on their team from the famous Gallowgate Stand.

Information on the Vikings’ ticket allocation for the event and when tickets go on sale will be announced in due course.


Therefore, to whet the appetite, we are taking a look back at one of the Vikings' memorable fixtures from the event...


2014 - Widnes Vikings 30-24 Salford Red Devils 

Widnes Vikings were able to gain revenge from the 2013 encounter between the two sides and claim a first ever win at the Magic Weekend event over the newly-named Salford Red Devils at the Etihad Stadium.

Despite losing Danny Craven in the first minute after a collision with Gareth Hock, the Vikings rallied and tries from Owens, Dean, White, Hanbury and brace from Paddy Flynn was enough to give the Vikings victory, although they had to face a set on their own line in the final minute to see the game out.

Widnes: Hanbury; Flynn, Dean, Marsh, Owens; Brown, Craven; Kavanagh, Clarke, Joseph, Allen, Tickle, Gerrard Replacements: White, Leuluai, Isa, Johnson.

Tries: Flynn 2, Owens, Dean, White, Hanbury Goals: Tickle 3

Salford: Eden; Williams, Gleeson, Sa'u, Meli; Chase, Mullaney; Griffin, Tomkins, Tasi, Hansen, Hock, Puletua. Replacements: Morley, Rapira, Howarth, Ashurst.

Tries: Sa'u, Chase, Ashurst, Williams, Meli Goals: Mullaney 2
