Good afternoon! Magic Weekend has already started in Newcastle, but we're here for the first Super League game of the day, as Widnes take on the leaders St Helens

Lovely day on Tyneside, Jay Chapelhow comes into the squad after Alex Gerrard picked up a knock yesterday. One change for Saints from last week's win in the cup over Castleford, Douglas replacing Kyle Amor

Maybe you want to know what happened between Toronto and Toulouse? The Wolfpack won 43-18 in that very international curtain raiser for the weekend

Out come the teams!

Liam Moore our ref, Widnes kick us off, directly over the dead ball line! 0-0 (1)

Saints go left, not afraid to pass back inside to keep it alive, but there's an interception 10 metres out. 0-0 (3)

Spill in midfield from Douglas takimg his eyes off the ball. Good defesive start from Widnes though after the kick off cock up. 0-0 (4)

Widnes get a pen 20m out after Saints don't tackle well...they might be in...WHITLEY! TRY!

Whitley comes strong, and he's over. Marsh with a pretty easy kick, and Widnes lead 6-0. Bit of a surprise! 6-0 (7)
