Wakefield Wildcats threw away a 14-point lead as Leeds stunned the hosts with a superb fightback.
Wildcats’ coach John Kear will have been upset with his side’s display, self-destructing after supposedly having the game under control.
Twice they turned down the opportunity of taking a penalty goal when Brent Webb was sin-binned for a professional foul late on, and were made to pay as a result.
Despite a brief setback with Rob Burrow scoring his first try of the night shortly after the break, Wakefield dominated the second half in a game they really should have won.
Leeds were rattled by their position, and found themselves continuously on the backfoot with ill-discipline and a significant amount of handling errors.
Wakefield were gifted two penalties consecutively in good positions, and were ordered to take the two points by Kear, but much to his dismay the side chose to run the ball.
And the resulting factor was that they were punished in a final quarter-hour blitz.
Firstly, Ali Lauitiiti showed superb footwork to sidestep his way over, and Burrow grabbed his second with two minutes remaining to tee up a superb finish.
The home side fell apart with seconds remaining and it was left to wingman Scott Donald to finish the job and complete the comeback, after Leeds broke the Wildcats ranks again.
