Report: 

You just knew. You just knew. Wigan kept having chances to seal the game but couldn't take them. Leeds nicked the result and condemned Wigan to a second straight loss.

Nothing has changed last season. Lets get this right. A lightweight Leeds pack finished the game stronger than our not far off full strength pack. Not good enough.

Wigan came out and perhaps got lucky first half. They defended well and took their chances when they arose.

In the early minutes Leeds came close to scoring three times but Keith Senior, Ryan Bailey and Ali Lauitiiti all failed to finish off good moves.

Wigan took advantage by opening the scoring in the 20th minute. Centre Pat Richards palmed back Denis Moran's high kick and 18-year-old substitute Joel Tomkins followed up score with his first touch of the ball. It was against the run of play.

Then as half time approached Wigan hit the Rhinos with two tries in quick concession.

First Wayne Godwin, who many fans say should be starting ahead of Mick Higham, scored a try all by himself in the 36th Minute. Leeds had barely recovered from that shock when full-back Chirs Ashton, swooped on Pat Richards' grubber kick to score a third try and Danny Tickle kicked his second conversion to send us in at half time with a 16-0 lead.

I felt we needed just one score to mentally put this match beyond Leeds but despite repeated efforts we just didn't have it in us to score. Perhaps leadership is still a problem.

Leeds simply took their chances. Hitting back with second half tries from Shane Millard, Danny McGuire before Kevin Sinfield and Rob Burrow sealed an inevitable Leeds win in the last four minutes.

Very, very disappointing,
