Leeds Rhinos 14 Wigan Warriors 23

By Will Hopper

Leeds Rhinos fell to defeat to rivals Wigan Warriors in a thrilling, end-to-end Betfred Super League contest.

The Rhinos had the best chance of the two sides in the opening 10 minutes thanks to a line break from Richie Myler that saw him run almost 60 metres. Unfortunately for Leeds, a handling mistake just short of the try line cost them a chance to draw first blood.

We didn’t have to wait too long for the first big decision of the evening as the visitors thought they’d scored when they bundled the ball over the try line. However, a no-try ruling on the field was upheld by video referee Ben Thaler and kept the match scoreless.

Wigan began to slow the ball down by holding in the tackle as often as they could and eventually the Rhinos won themselves a penalty to give them great field position. A high tackle from Wigan captain Sean O’Loughlin on Brad Dwyer then proceeded to give the home side the perfect opportunity to take the lead. Liam Sutcliffe converted the penalty from in front of the posts to give Leeds the lead.

The Warriors responded by scoring the first try of the game through Oliver Gildart down the left wing and Chris Hankinson added the extras to make the score 6-2 to the visitors. Hankinson then converted back-to-back penalties to push their advantage out to 8 points.

The Rhinos vented their frustrations perfectly by winning consecutive penalties and marching down the field to score. A try from Adam Cuthbertson went upstairs and was quickly awarded by the video referee after seeing that he had managed ground the ball after powering his way over the try line.

A drop goal attempt on the halftime hooter from Wigan’s Sam Powell floated through the uprights and ended the half at 11-8 to the away side and set up a tense second half of action.

Leeds began to build pressure early in the second half, especially when Harry Newman had the opportunity to show off his dazzling footwork. The pressure was rewarded when Trent Merrin dove to score between the posts and regain the lead for The Rhinos. Tui Lolohea converted the try to make the score 14-11.

The try had certainly lifted the Emerald Headingley crowd and the men wearing Blue & Amber responded by forcing the visitors into a mistake deep in their own half. Brad Dwyer managed to wriggle over the try line but was eventually held up and the same fate awaited Harry Newman on the last tackle of the set.

An injury to Ash Handley halted Leeds’ momentum and Wigan stormed straight down the field to score through Oliver Partington. Hankinson continued his perfect performance from the kicking tee and added the extras to give The Warriors a three-point advantage.

The Rhinos almost responded immediately had it not been for some last ditch defending from the visitors to prevent Ava Seumanufagai from crossing the try line. A no-try decision from the video referee then prevented Trent Merrin from putting Leeds back in front with just five minutes remaining.

Unfortunately, a final Hail Mary attempt to win the match went horribly wrong as Tony Clubb picked up the loose ball and scored in the corner. Hankinson converted a tough kick and ended the match 14-23 to the visitors.
