Rhys Hanbury helped Widnes Vikings move to the brink of securing their Super League status with four tries in his side's 46-4 win at Wakefield.

Widnes led 22-0 at the break, with Hanbury grabbing a brace in between Lloyd White and Aaron Heremaia tries.

Hanbury competed his hat-trick and Kevin Brown went over before Lee Smith responded for Wakefield.
