Widnes Vikings hooker Lloyd White believes his side can "kick on" after their first win of the 2015 Super League season.

White, 26, scored four tries as the Vikings thrashed Wakefield 56-18.

Following their eighth-placed finish last term, Widnes have drawn and lost their other two games so far.

"It's always nice to get a win on the board. We had that draw with Wigan but we've got two points for the win now," White told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"I think we had a bit of luck go our way. We stuck to our gameplan but I don't think we expected a score like that to be honest.

"It's really important and we can kick on from there now."

Denis Betts' side ran in 10 tries as they ended Wakefield's perfect start to the season on the artificial turf at the Select Security Stadium.

After finishing in the top eight play-off places last year, Widnes will be hoping for another similar season to secure their place in Super League next season under the new structure.

"Anyone watching from the outside can tell that it means a lot to all the teams this year, you can't have any weeks off," added Wales hooker White.

"There's massive competition throughout the squad - everyone is pushing for places and if you don't perform to your ability then you're going to be out.

"I still haven't got that many games under my belt, I'm still learning.

"I still want to learn from Aaron Heremaia, just picking up on little things that he does and then trying to work on what I'm good at to make me better."
