Wigan Warriors 10 Tries: Hock, Ainscough Goals: Richards
Leeds Rhinos made it five from five as they easily overcame Wigan Warriors at Headingley Carnegie Stadium.
The Rhinos, who welcomed back Kiwi Fullback Brent Webb, started very strongly and took the lead after a 40/20 from Burrow set up the position for Kylie Leuluai to open the scoring. Scott Donald made the most of Shaun Ainscough mistake to touchdown in the corner. Rob Burrow and Ryan Hall added other tries as Leeds raced into 22-0, with Wigan hardly having a touch. Just before the break, Ainscough atoned for his mistake to get the Warriors on the scoreboard.
Wigan had two tries disallowed from the video referee at the start of the second-half and Leeds extended their lead when Hall leaped above Amos Roberts to score. Jamie Peacock crashed over as the Rhinos went out of sight to lead 34-6.
Gareth Hock scored a late consolation try for Wigan but they were well beaten as Leeds kept up their 100% record and stayed top of the engage Super League table.
