Leeds Rhinos 12 Wigan Warriors 26

19th March 1999

By Leeds Rhinos

Wigan got their revenge on the Rhinos but it was another good battle between Super League’s top sides.

. Without Richie Blackmore, Brad Godden, Adrian Morley, Anthony Farrell and Marcus St Hilaire it was always going to be difficult against an inform Wigan outfit.

However, the Rhinos went into the half time break ahead before Wigan took control with a couple of late tries to avenge the 28-18 Cup defeat by 12-man Leeds a month ago.

After an evenly balanced opening with both defences tested heavily, it was the Rhinos who struck first when Ryan Sheridan's grubber kick on the last tackle bounced off the upright which confused Wigan full-back Kris Radlinski, and presented the Rhinos' scrum-half with a simple touchdown.

Within seconds of Harris kicking the goal, Wigan had hit back when Gary Connolly palmed back the ball from the kick off and started a move that saw the speedy Lee Gilmour cut through the Rhinos's defence to touch down for an impressive try.

Wigan's powerful second rower Simon Haughton, on as a subsitute, sent in Paul Johnson for the visitors second which Andy Farrell improved.

But just when Wigan looked like taking control, Leeds put their defence under increasing pressure and regained the lead when centre Marvin Golden, who had earlier had a try ruled out by the video referee took advantage of good work by Lee Jackson and Daryl Powell to touch down and Iestyn Harris added his second goal.

However, a Harris penalty given against Wigan stand off Greg Florimo, right on the hooter sailed narrowly wide. If Leeds had shaded the first half Wigan were dominant during the final 40 minutes and regained the lead eight minutes after the re-start when Gilmour's powerful run set up Cassidy who burst through the two-man tackle of Harris and Powell from the play-the-ball to score.

Farrell's second goal made it 16-12 but the game was still in the balance as a Leeds again piled the pressure on Wigan's overworked defence.

After defending three sets of six close to their own line, Wigan eventually won the game with a break-away try when Johnson slipped past the flailing arms of Jamie Mathiou on his own 20-metre line and beat Harris in a dramatic run to the line.

The Rhions barely had time to regain their composure before Jason Robinson decided to be around Leroy Rivett and run half the length of the field to help set up a try that Cassidy finished off.
