LEEDS RHINOS 10, WIGAN WARRIORS 14: Thomas Leuluai earned the family bragging rights as Wigan ended the unbeaten home record of Super League champions Leeds and closed the gap on them to just two points.

Prop forward Kylie Leuluai scored his first try of the season for the Rhinos five minutes before half-time to restore his side's lead on Saturday night.

But cousin Thomas, the Warriors scrum-half, replied for the visitors just four minutes later as the lead changed hands for a third time and Wigan tackled their hearts out in a scoreless second half to secure a precious victory in front of a Headingley crowd off 18,769.

Pat Richards, who kicked three first-half goals, cancelled out Scott Donald's opening try for the hosts.

Wigan gave a debut to 19-year-old half-back Thomas Coyle in the continued absence of Australian playmaking star Trent Barrett and he performed admirably with some clever tactical kicking - earning praise from coach Brian Noble.

He said: "I'm really pleased for Thomas Coyle and I thought Thomas Leuluai stood up to the plate and steered the team around.

"It was really intense and it had to be because Leeds were pounding away at the end. We got embarrassed at St Helens and since then we've re-focused and our performances have been pretty good."
