This was a tremendous battle but ultimately the heavier
Leeds pack contributed them earning a great win at Central Park. A
"magnificent" penalty goal from Cooke and try from Price saw Leeds win 5-0.
Wigan's case was not helped by Ken Gee being sent off for the second time is
as many months, though in saying that Leeds' Prosser was sent off with him.
