Summary:l

Leeds had nilled Wigan at Central Park earlier in the season, so this was a sweet return compliment from Wigan here. A lovely one handed pass by Gene Miles sent David Myers over for the first try on 23 minutes before good work from Joe Lydon created a try for Phil Clarke. This helped Wigan lead 14-0 half time and they never looked back second half. Shaun Edwards claimed his 22nd try of the season before poor discipline from Bobbie Goulding allowed Dean Bell to return a "quick tap" all 75 metres by himself. The win put Leeds out of the title race and Wigan were continuing to easily head towards the title.
