New Widnes captain Jon Clarke has challenged his team to prove their worth in Super League this season.

The Vikings return to the top flight next month for the first time since losing their place in 2005.

The 32-year-old was appointed skipper after moving from rivals Warrington, following 11 years with the Wolves.

"We're not just highlighting a win every week," Clarke told BBC Radio Merseyside. "I think we need to look past that and get some consistency.

"We don't want to be just up for the big games and down for the others and then have an up and down season. I don't think that would be good for us.

"We're being consistent in everything we do in training and that lends itself to being consistent throughout the season."
