Widnes Vikings captain Jon Clarke admits it would be a dream ending to his career if he could lead the side out at Wembley on August 23.

The Vikings are now only 80 minutes away from their first Challenge Cup Final in over 20 years after their comprehensive victory over Keighley on Thursday night.

“We did well on Thursday night, were dominant and got the job done early on so it was a good performance by the lads,” Clarke told League Express.

“To lead the club out in our first semi-final since 1993 will be an immensely proud occasion for me and the club, and we will certainly go out and enjoy it.”
