BBC Sport - Widnes v Warrington: 'Cup kings' seal derby day spoils

'Cup kings' Widnes seal derby spoils

BBC Super League Show looks back at the 1979 John Player Trophy final when "cup kings" Widnes beat rivals Warrington.

Player-coach Dougie Laughton had assembled a side used to final appearances, and they headed for St Helens' Knowsley Road having already won the BBC2 Floodlit Trophy and the Lancashire Cup.

Warrington were holders of the competition, having beaten the Chemics in the previous season's final but were brushed aside 16-4.

Laughton's side made it a quadruple the following weekend, seeing off Wakefield in the Challenge Cup final at Wembley.

You can see every try from every round on the BBC's Super League Show, which is available on the BBC iPlayer.
