SAINTS survived a rousing Widnes fightback to seal a place in the fifth round of the Carnegie Challenge Cup after a 40-38 success.

Saints looked set for a comfortable victory when they led 40-22 before Kurt Haggerty went over for Widnes.

Then Saints hooker James Roby was sin-binned for a professional foul and Widnes hit back with three late tries from Hep Cahill, Patrick Ah Van and Lloyd White.

Widnes would have drawn had Ah Van’s attempted conversion to his own try not hit the post four minutes from time.
