Wigan Warriors 26 Leeds Rhinos 22

19th June 2004

By Leeds Rhinos

There was disappointment for the Rhinos at JJB Stadium as they suffered only their second defeat of the season at the hands of Wigan, with Andy Farrell’s late two penalties the difference in an enthralling game.

Wigan struck first through Kris Radlinski who jumped highest to collect Adrian Lam’s bomb after 7 minutes after the video ref had denied Terry Newton a try when he was short in his attempt. Farrell added the conversion to make it 6-0.
Marcus Bai hit back three minutes later when he latched onto a grubber from Senior. The move that led to the try stretched Wigan across the field after a break by Sinfield, Lauitiiti and Walker down the right put the home side on the back foot before play was switched and Diskin went to the blind side on the last tackle.

Newton was not to be denied a try against his former side and the video ref ruled in his favour following a second effort from a dummy half scoot on 12 minutes. Farrell again converted to make it 12-4.  Ali Lauitiiti was at his most talented best with ball in hand and he scored his third try in three games on 24 minutes when a kick through by Dunemann perplexed Radlinski and Tickle, leaving Ali to collect and touch down.

Sinfield added the conversion and then a penalty to tie the game up after 30 minutes when Craig Smith was penalised by referee Richard Silverwood for interference at the play the ball.  Leeds withstood intense pressure from the home side at the end of the half with Chev Walker twice the savour to keep the Rhinos level at half time.

Wigan came out firing in the second half and took a ten point lead in as many minutes. First Hock benefited from a sublime run by Lam to crash over and then O’Loughlin was on hand to take Newton’s pass, as the hooker latched onto a loose ball on the Leeds goal line, Tickle converted to make it 22-12.

Sinfield then steadied the ship with a penalty after 54 minutes before Jamie Jones-Buchanan scored his third try of the season against Wigan on the hour mark. McGuire’s cross field kick was initially missed by Marcus Bai but it then came off his thigh and the flying Papua New Guinean picked up bouncing ball and in the same movement passed to Jones Buchanan to score with Sinfield’s conversion making it 22-20.

Sinfield and Farrell then traded penalties before the Rhinos mounted a massive full scale assault on the Wigan line and the home sides resolute defence earned them the victory. Rob Burrow did have an attempt at goal that narrowly drifted wide before Wigan wrapped up the win with a Farrell penalty in front of the posts on the hooter after Sinfield had attempted an audacious drop out with seconds remaining.
