Both Wigan and Leeds came into this Friday Sky Clash with
100% records, having each won three out of three so far. Wigan though
produced a superb display to make a mockery of Leeds start to the season.
Jason Robinson crossed to open the scoring before two tries from Martin
Offiah had Wigan 14-0 at the break. Leeds did hit back after half time with
Wigan's failure to deal with a bomb allowing Gary Mercer to score but tries
for Barrie McDermott, Gary Connolly and Shaun Edwards saw Wigan win easily
38-6 in the end. One negative for Wigan was the loss of Kelvin Skerrett with
a possible fracture to the cheekbone damaged in the previous May's
Premiership Final but McDermott replacing him impressed. Leeds night was
summed up with Kevin Iro having to endure a sin bin period but Leeds coach
Dougie Laughton's claim that their "loose ends were coming together" was
looking ridiculous after this.
