Summary:l

The first Saturday of the new year saw Wigan embarking on an always difficult trip to play Leeds at Headingley. It proved a tough battle with Wigan trailing 5-2, 7-5 and 9-7 at times during the game but Wigan managed to claw into an 11-9 lead and it was them that looked more likely to increase it late on rather than Leeds finding a levelling goal or winning try. It was a big win with all the other top six sides winning also. 34,000 attended the match.
