Jon Clarke wants Widnes Vikings to keep core group of players

Captain Jon Clarke tells BBC North West Sport that Widnes should follow the example of clubs such as Wigan and Warrington by keeping a core group of players and creating a stable side.

The veteran hooker recently agreed a new contract and was closely followed by star winger Patrick Ah Van.

Widnes finished bottom of Super League in 2012, but lie four points from a play-off spot ahead of their Magic Weekend meeting with Salford City Reds on Sunday.
