Match Preview


Betts aware of Chase effect

Widnes coach Denis Betts admits the 'Rangi Chase factor' is making it virtually impossible to fully prepare his side for Sunday's all-Super League Challenge Cup clash with Salford.


The magical talents of the Red Devils' 2011 Man of Steel helped knock out last year's runners-up Hull in the fourth round and he is the man the Vikings need to contain on his 150th appearance in the British game if they are to reach the last eight - but Betts knows that is easier said than done.


"He can create something from nothing," Betts said. "Some of the stuff he did against Bradford recently, like trick passes and flicks, shows how free-wheeling and skilful he is.


"It's easy to say close him down but you can't touch what you can't see! One minute he's there and the next he's not."
