Summary:l

If Wigan wanted to make a late rally for the "Top 4" they really need to stop losing games, but every time they took a step forward, they soon followed it with a step back. Fate was not with them though on this trip to Leeds. Arthur Binks, who Wigan had signed from Leeds, left the field very early on in the match with a cut eye and concussion. He didn't return and a 13 v 12 advantage for Leeds was too much for Wigan to cope with.
