Leeds Rhinos 26 Wigan Warriors 18

31st March 2017

By Leeds Rhinos

A fine try from Kallum Watkins in the second half on his 200th appearance for the club helped seal a hard earned victory over champions Wigan Warriors at Headingley Carnegie.

The Rhinos opened the scoring after seven minutes when Wigan captain Thomas Leuluai intercepted Adam Cuthbertson’s offload from an offside position. Ashton Golding had the straight forward penalty attempt to then put his side in the lead.
 
Wigan soon hit back when they gained a repeat set from a clever George Williams kick to the in goal. Tom Briscoe had to touch the ball down and from the repeat set Williams used his footwork in a different method to race away from two would be tacklers before evading Matt Parcell enough to be able to reach out and score. Morgan Escare added the conversion to give his side a 6-2 lead.
 
The game was being played a furious pace and when Jimmy Keinhorst was quickest to react to a loose pass from Wigan, Leeds immediately went on the front foot. Carl Ablett timed his pass to perfection to release Kallum Watkins, who raced up field before drawing the last man and unselfishly passing inside for Ryan Hall to score.  Golding added the conversion to put his side in front again.
 
Leeds then increased the advantage with a second try soon after. Anthony Mullally produced two strong carries before Joel Moon darted through the gap and stepped the full back to score. Golding added the conversion to give his side a 14-6 lead.
 
Once again Wigan came back and Leeds had to produce some strong defence to keep them out. However, it was Williams again who did the damage. The Rhinos defence, aware of the danger of the England man, rushed out to close him down but he was too quick and raced through to score. Escare added the conversion to cut the gap to two points again.
 
Leeds finished the half strongly with Adam Cuthbertson looking certain to score only to be held up over the line. On the next tackle, McGuire kicked high for the corner, Briscoe contested the kick and knocked it back to Watkins who went over. However, referee Thaler opted to send the decision to the video referee who adjudged Briscoe had interfered with the Wigan catcher before he got the ball.
 
There was an unseemly incident whilst all eyes were on the big screen as Willie Isa took exception to Ashton Golding lining up the goal kick whilst the decision was being arrived at. It led to both squad rushing in and two tackles later Brett Ferres was sent to the sin bin for a tackle on Oliver Gildart.
 
Wigan pressed hard in the final set of the half but Leeds stood firm and held onto their narrow lead at the interval.
 
The second half was just as pulsating as the two sides went toe to toe.  The Rhinos extended their lead with a penalty from Golding

Wigan were then denied a try by the video referee, who disagreed with Ben Thaler on the field, and said there was a double movement before the ball was grounded. It was a harsh call on Wigan and they will have felt doubly aggrieved afterwards when Watkins marked his 200th appearance for the club with a sensational try. Golding missed the conversion but the Rhinos now led 20-12. 

Wigan were then gifted a try for Liam Marshall as he snatched up a loose pass to race clear. Escare took the game back to two points with the conversion but the Rhinos sealed the win with a well deserved try for Carl Ablett.
