A vastly under strength Widnes RUFC team went down heavily in this North One West fixture at Warwick Road.

They gave their all, but Carlisle were just too dominant in the pack, and a purple patch at both the start and the end of the game saw them run in six tries.

In between, Widnes scored two tries from Liam Wilde and Tom Tindall, whilst Kevin Leadbetter added both conversions.

Lee McDermott’s side travel to face Birkenhead Park on Saturday, in a re-arranged fixture.
