Hello, it's Thursday! It's Super League. It's Widnes v Salford and it's live!

Both teams have won two of their opening six games and for the winner tonight there's the opportunity to get into mid-table. Still early-ish in the season though.

Kickoff is just under 15 minutes away. Think Widnes will win by a slightly bigger margin than the handicaps suggest, although I'm a useless gambler

Here come the teams!

Ben Thaler is your ref, Salford kick us off! 0-0 (1)

Widnes get to halfway before kicking on last tackle. Evalds takes it cleanly. 0-0 (2)

Ed Chamberlain, fresh from presenting Cheltenham last week, does well with a tricky kick from Lui on Widnes' 40m line. 0-0 (3)

Lui with another kick, there's a collision off the ball but Thaler sees nothing wrong. Widnes getting pegged back just a little. They kick away this possession still deep in their own half. 0-0 (5)

Bibby doing very well to take another Lui kick ahead of the ingoal area. Salford just sensibly making metres. Just getting sets completed. Good start from them. 0-0 (7)
