• Widnes 18-38 St Helens
• Regan Grace and Ryan Morgan touch down twice for St Helens

The opening Super League game of the Magic Weekend will hardly take up too much time on the highlights package, but for the Super League leaders it underlined the vital trait of being able to win even when they are not playing to their potential.
