24th August 2001: Leeds 18 Wigan 38

Leeds Rhinos v Wigan Warriors - Tetley's Super League VI Round 25
Friday 24th August 2001. Kick Off 8:00pm at Headingley

Match Report

Andy Farrell has broken the Super League point-scoring record for a season as Wigan moved back into a share of top spot with Bradford.

The Great Britain captain scored a try and seven goals to beat Sean Long's record of 352 and leave Leeds Rhinos sweating on a play-off place.

And to add insult to injury the hosts had to watch one of the former players run the Wigan show.

Terry Newton laid on the final passes for Wigan's first three tries and then crossed twice himself as his team held on despite the second-half sin-binning of Gary Connolly.

The Rhinos took an 18th minute lead with a try from Kevin Sinfield who stood in at stand-off for the injured Karl Pratt.

But either side of the break that early lead became nothing but a distant memory for the home crowd as the Warriors put 24 points on the board.

Connolly scored Wigan's first try despite claims of a knock-on that left the Headingley crowd bemoaning the video referee's verdict which he made after only looking at the replay once.

Wigan's other Ashes centre contender Paul Johnson crashed over in similar fashion from a short Newton pass before Adrian Lam benefitted from the hooker's all-action style to score.

A minute into the second Newton finally crossed himself after good work from Kris Radlinski.

The Rhinos finally imposed themselves on the game but only after Connolly had been sent to the sidelines for holding down Darren Fleary after making a try-saving tackle.

Mark Calderwood and Robbie Mears both crossed to cut the deficit to six points but that was as close as they got.

Newton forced his way over from dummy half for his second try before Farrell crossed for a sixth Wigan score to consign Leeds to their third defeat of the season at the hands of the Warriors and one that may prove damaging to their play-off hopes.

The best team won but I've never been as angry as I am at the moment - It's very tough refereeing, but it's a little bit easier with the screen because you can take your time
