Leeds Rhinos 12 Wigan Warriors 27

30th May 2015

By Leeds Rhinos

Two second half tries from Wigan full back Matty Bowen sealed a 27-14 win for the Warriors over Leeds at the 2015 Magic Weekend at Newcastle United’s St James’ Park.

The Rhinos welcomed back Brett Delaney and Jamie Jones-Buchanan to the side that defeated Hull KR eight days earlier with Liam Sutcliffe and Josh Walters dropping out of the side.

Wigan opened the scoring after eight minutes when Leeds were penalised for ball stealing on Matty Bowen after it initially appeared the full back had lost the ball 30 metres from his own line. Wigan made the most of their possession and territory as George Williams evaded two would-be tacklers on the last tackle before the ball found its way to Dan Sarginson. The England international went for the corner and referee Phil Bentham initially signalled he had been held up before being over ruled by his two colleagues in the video ref booth.  Matty Smith missed the conversion attempt from wide out but his side led had struck an early blow at 4-0.
 
The Rhinos hit back after 15 minutes on the back of their first two penalties of the game. From short range, Adam Cuthbertson timed his run to perfection to take Kevin Sinfield’s short pass and power his way over next to the post. Sinfield added the conversion to put his side in front.
 
Leeds were grateful to Ryan Hall for maintain that lead when he stopped a certain try with some quick thinking as Wigan broke through and had the line at the mercy only for Hall to bat a wide pass back towards his own try line and then take it out of play.
 
The Rhinos made the most of their let off when they crossed for a second try. Danny McGuire hung a kick into the corner which Wigan could only try and knock dead only to see Joel Moon pop up in the in goal to touch down. Sinfield added the conversion to give his side a 12-4 lead.
 
Leeds had further chances most notably when Paul Aiton was held up over the line and then Ash Handley narrowly failed to get his hand to a spilled ball in the Wigan in goal.
 
This time it was Wigan’s turn to make the most of their let off when George Williams broke through down the right and headed for the corner. Hardaker made a brilliant effort to get across and try and take the half back into touch and although replays proved inconclusive, the score was awarded.
 
Smith missed the conversion but his side were soon level when Matty Bowen caught Hardaker’s kick on the full and then drew the tackled of Kallum Watkins before passing to Joe Burgess, who flew through the gap to go 50 metres to score between the posts. Smith added the simple conversion to give his side a narrow 14-12 lead at the interval.
 
The third quarter of the game was a war of attrition and both teams threw everything at each other. Leeds had their best chance following the arrival of Rob Burrow as he set up a chance for Kallum Watkins however when the centre offloaded the ball to Ash Handley, the youngest was agonisingly short of reaching out and scoring as he lost control of the ball.
 
Williams remained the instigator of all things good for Wigan and Leeds needed a strong tackle from Ryan Hall to stop the half back after one dangerous break.
 
However, it was Wigan who finally broke the deadlock in the second half. Handley was tackled by Burgess and the ball came loose, Bowen was quickest to react and picked up to run 60 metres to score between the posts. Smith added the conversion to give his side a 20-12 lead with twenty minutes to go.
 
Leeds battled hard but they could find no way through the resolute Wigan defence whist the Warriors were able to build pressure and wind down the clock with their two score lead in hand.
 
Wigan made the most of their possession with a fifth try when Burrow tried to knock a grubber kick dead only to see Bowen dive over the top of him and be awarded the score by the video referees by the finest of margins. Smith added the conversion and a drop goal to give his side a 27-12 win.
