Widnes Vikings will be looking to make it four wins in a row at the start of the new Betfred Championship season when they travel to face Dewsbury Rams in Monday Night Rugby League on Premier Sports.

The Vikings have been in fine form so far in 2022, scoring an impressive 113 points in just three matches to date.

They can also boast one of the meanest defences in the division, having conceded 38 points so far in their matches against London, Workington and Halifax.

But Dewsbury will have their own high hopes after overcoming Sheffield Eagles 12-10 last time out – their first win of the season.

And the Rams have a fine record against Widnes in recent years which will provide reason for optimism – they have won four of the six fixtures between the two sides since Widnes returned to the Championship ahead of the 2019 season.

Elsewhere this weekend, there are two fixtures on Saturday as Newcastle play host to Whitehaven – both sides are looking for their second win of the season.

And a tie between Featherstone Rovers and London Broncos kicks off at 5.30pm – London are yet to secure their first point of the season while Rovers have won three from three.

On Sunday, Workington Town are at home to Halifax Panthers and Sheffield Eagles travel to Batley Bulldogs.

Meanwhile, Barrow Raiders’ 100 per-cent record goes on the line in their trip to face Bradford Bulls at Odsal and there’s a clash of two promotion hopefuls as York City Knights host Leigh Centurions.
