Get involved

But that's about it for this evening. It was quite a first half at the KC Stadium, not such a thriller in the second.

If you want to relive any of the evening's action, you can read

match reports on all three games.

Thanks for joining us - and I hope you'll come back for some more hit-ups tomorrow.

Good Friday action

Two more live text commentaries, that's what.

We'll be back tomorrow lunchtime with Castleford v Leeds (12:45 BST) in the Rhinos' first game since Kevin Sinfield announced he would be leaving at the end of the season to

cross codes and join Yorkshire Carnegie.

Then there's the small matter of the first meeting of Wigan and St Helens (15:00 BST) last season's Grand Final. You get the feeling Wigan might want some revenge in that one.

Huddersfield host Salford in the day's final game.

What's next?

That's three of the Easter games out of the way, but there's three more to come tomorrow.

So, what will we have for you?

Robins up to fourth

FT: Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

That result at Widnes also means that Hull KR are up to fourth in Super League with their victory in the 224th city derby. Could Rovers be this season's Castleford?

FT: Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

Hull KR coach Chris Chester tells Sky Sports: "The crowd have been fantastic and it's extra pleasing we got the result for them.

"Defensively we were a lot better this week and we created enough opportunities to win two or three games - this is a close group and they've kept working hard. Form goes out the window in a derby and we just had to make sure we won the energy battle early doors and I thought we did.

"We're confident and I'm confident in this group of players. It's another big challenge on Monday but we'll be ready to go."

Full time

Widnes 30-10 Warrington

It's all over at the Halton Stadium where Widnes have beaten local rivals Warrington and are now only a point behind the Wire. It's fair to say the Super League table is looking congested, with four points separating third-placed Huddersfield from bottom-of-the-table Wakefield.

That could be six by tomorrow evening if the Giants beat Salford.

TRY

Widnes 30-10 Warrington (Owens)

And that will be that. Jack Owens caps a fine Widnes display by going over in the corner but can't add the extras to his own score. Not that it really matters.

FT: Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

Hull KR full-back and tryscorer Kieran Dixon tells Sky Sports: "Last week's performance was something special so to come out here against our rivals and win was something special too and it's a great night for Hull KR.

"This atmosphere and noise is the reason you play this sport."

Widnes 26-10 Warrington

We're entering the final few minutes at Widnes where the Vikings still lead by 16 points and look destined to win this evening's other derby.

That would be three straight defeats for Wire after losing to St Helens and Huddersfield.

Full time

Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

The match ends with Hull KR on the attack once again. It's easy to forget that there was just the two points from Josh Mantellato's boot scored in the second half, but Hull KR were well on top.

Where do Hull FC go from here?

Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

Choruses of "you're getting sacked in the morning" and "you're going down" ring from the stands. Not a good time to be a Hull FC fan.

Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

Another great driving run from Kris Welham puts Hull KR in striking range, but what should be the scoring pass is knocked on. It doesn't matter too much to the result, with time running out but the vociferous Robins fans are baying for another score. The Hull FC fans are making for the exits.

Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

Kieran Dixon has had a decent night but he's definitely slipped off the level he reached in the opening 40 minutes. Under zero pressure on halfway and in a promising position he passes in Ken Sio's vague direction but is a horrible pass - high and straight into touch.

Like one of mine, off my left hand I might add, for all those lucky enough to see me in action many years ago.

TRY

Widnes 26-10 Warrington (Currie)

Is this the start of a late Warrington comeback? Widnes are down to 12 with Danny Tickle in the sin-bin and Ben Currie capitalises on some quick hands to score in the corner.

TRY

Wakefield 4-40 Catalans Dragons (Riley)

It's been a dispiriting night for Wakefield but they get some reward right on the final hooter as Chris Riley touches down for a try that isn't really much consolation.

Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

Lucky or skilful? You be the judge - Terry Campese fires a long kick downfield which looks like it's been overcooked as it hits the turf deep in Hull FC's in-goal area.

But a remarkable bounce - a touch of backspin if we continue the snooker analogy - sends it back into play and forces Fetuli Talanoa into playing a ball he thought he'd see soar into touch.

Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

It's looking a long, long road back for Hull FC - there's been no lack of effort, but the lack of tryscoring threat is a real concern for a side still struggling at the wrong end of the table.

Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

Terry Campese's kicking game is absolutely superb tonight. Another accurate high ball puts Fetuli Talanoa in all sorts of bother, and the winger coughs up possession before a team-mate handles it to give the penalty away. If it was Ronnie O'Sullivan on the snooker table, you'd say his positional play has been inch-perfect tonight.

Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

Ken Sio makes a bullocking run after a high ball comes his way following a slight misfield by Kieran Dixon and Hull KR are on the front foot again.

TRY

Wakefield 0-40 Catalans Dragons (Cardace)

That's a hat-trick for Damian Cardace. This time Thomas Bosc is the provider with a miss-out pass and Cardace does the rest. Scott Dureau misses again. Was it something I said?

Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

Richard Stead

BBC Radio Humberside

"Hull FC have been as poor in attack this evening as I have seen them this season."

Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR

In stark contrast, with Gareth Ellis in the stands, Hull FC look somewhat rudderless. Steve Michaels is held up over the line for the home side but from the next play Jordan Thompson ploughs forward into heavy traffic - on the last tackle. Not his or Hull FC's finest moment.

TRY

Widnes 26-6 Warrington (Brown, con Owens)

Warrington lose Ben Westwood to the sin-bin for conceding three penalties in three tackles.

And Widnes make the most of their numerical advantage when Kevin Brown dances through the defence to score, with Jack Owens' goal giving the Vikings a 20-point lead.

PENALTY

Hull FC 6-20 Hull KR (Mantellato)

Josh Mantellato curls in a lovely effort to put Hull KR three scores clear - and it's no less than they deserve. It was noticeable the way Terry Campese took control of the situation, instantly calling for the two points when the penalty was awarded - a cool head in a pressurised environment.

Hull FC 6-18 Hull KR

That's what derby victories are built on - superb, full-hearted runs like the one Kris Welham has just produced from deep, powering past three tackles before winning the penalty as he's cynically held down as the pitch began to open up.

TRY

Widnes 20-6 Warrington (White, con Owens)

That's 20 unanswered points for Widnes now as Lloyd White goes over from dummy-half and Jack Owens adds the conversion from the touchline.

Hull FC 6-18 Hull KR

The two full-backs have had decent games but in the space of two minutes both Kieran Dixon and Jamie Shaul both fail to cover themselves in glory as high balls are allowed to bounce or kicked forward after being misfielded. But both players get away without being punished - maybe they've earned that luck for their displays thus far.

Hull FC 6-18 Hull KR

Hull FC defend with real passion to keep Hull KR out, but it's almost calamity at the handover as disorganisation at the play-the-ball sees players with their backs to play wandering back into position as the game restarts around them. Hull FC need their senior players to take control.

TRY

Wakefield 0-36 Catalans Dragons (Cardace)

Catalans have a sixth try and Damian Cardace has his second after receiving a fantastic miss-out pass from Scott Dureau who, for once, can't add the conversion. Must be the commentator's curse.

Hull FC 6-18 Hull KR

Terry Campese is having a fine game at stand-off for Hull KR and his perfectly-weighted kick turns Jamie Shaul around and gives the full-back nowhere to go before he's engulfed by Robins defenders before he gets back into the field of play. Goal-line drop-out and all thanks to Campese's beautiful kick.

Hull FC 6-18 Hull KR

That was close. Albert Kelly shows great skill to pluck a kick out of the air in attack and in the shadow of the posts tries to slip the offload away only to nudge it forward - if that ball had gone backwards it was a try under the posts for Hull KR.

Hull FC 6-18 Hull KR

Very good start to the half for Hull FC as they win a penalty for an obstruction by Hull KR after a bomb goes up. They go close with Joe Westerman held up over the line but the Robins defence holds firm.

Kick-off

Hull FC 6-18 Hull KR

Hull KR put boot to ball and we're off. Which way will this go?

TRY

Wakefield 0-32 Catalans Dragons (Cardace, con Dureau)

Wakefield begin the second half as they finished the first - conceding points.

Scott Dureau, who has been pivotal, puts the kick in behind and Damian Cardace reacts first to touch down. It's no surprise that Dureau remains perfect with the boot.

Hull FC 6-18 Hull KR

Nick Pinkney

BBC Radio Humberside

"Hull KR do seem to struggle to keep possession but they are devastating with ball in hand.

"It is a big ask for Hull FC because they have looked predictable. They have got 12 points in them but Rovers have probably got more than 12 points in them."

Half-time

Widnes 14-6 Warrington

Right on the hooter Jack Owens has another chance from the tee after Warrington concede a penalty. Not for the first time, his effort is off target and Widnes only lead by eight points after the break despite outscoring the Wolves three tries to one.

Hull FC 6-18 Hull KR

Hull FC, who have lost Liam Watts to injury for the time being, have had plenty of possession but you have to say for the most part the black-and-whites have struggled to really put their opponents under enough pressure.

In contrast, Hull KR look vibrant in attack - but will they regret not getting further ahead of the bitter local rivals while being on top?

TRY

Widnes 14-6 Warrington (Marsh)

Still playing at Widnes, who extend their lead with a brilliant third try.

Fabulous pass from Rhys Hanbury to Stefan Marsh who touches down for his second try of the evening. The Vikings can't get full value for their score, though, as Jack Owens conversion attempt is off target.

Half-time

Hull FC 6-18 Hull KR

Kieran Dixon - the star of the first half - is held in possession in his own half as the hooter goes for the half-time interval. Plenty to chew on after that 40 minutes - and plenty to be said in both changing rooms.

Half-time

Wakefield 0-26 Catalans Dragons

Not sure the half-time oranges will taste too sweet in the Wakefield dressing room. Tries from Benjamin Garcia, Willie Tonga, Ben Pomeroy and Elliott Whitehead have Catalans in complete control.
