Vikings win key match

LONDON - Widnes Vikings head into next week's rugby league Challenge Cup semi-final with Castleford Tigers on a high after beating Hull KR to boost their Super League play-off hopes.

It was an important fixture for both teams — just one point the difference between the two sides in mid-table before the clash — but the Vikings built a three-point buffer in eighth with a performance that involved five different try-scorers.

A further good news for Widnes, half-back Kevin Brown recovered in time after suffering injury in last week's defeat to St Helens to surge over in the 28-10 victory.

Castleford meanwhile also prepared in perfect fashion with a big 64-18 triumph over the pointless London Broncos.

Australian star Justin Carney grabbed a hat-trick before half-time and his compatriot Luke Dorn touched down twice against his old club as Tigers had it wrapped up quickly.

Huddersfield Giants brushed aside Wakefield Wildcats 36-18 to tighten up the Super League's top half, with just four points now separating the first six teams.

Huddersfield, who remain sixth, stormed to a 32-point lead by the interval, though Wakefield did save face in the second half through former Penrith Panther Jarrod Sammut, who scored two tries.

Relegated Bradford Bulls backed up their remarkable victory over Wigan Warriors with another shock against Leeds Rhinos on Friday, as Lee Gaskell scored a late try to clinch a 20-14 win.
