Warrington Wolves 10-52 Leeds Rhinos

It was Scott Donald's try right on half time which perhaps put paid to Warrington's chances, as prior to that, they had competed with the Rhinos, with Ben Westwood giving the Wolves an early advantage.

In fact it took Leeds 28 minutes to get on the score sheet, Gareth Ellis crossing the whitewash. Clinton Toopi then put the visitors ahead before Brent Grose reduced the arrears to 12-10.

The second half may have been a different story had Donald's converted not extended the Rhinos' half time advantage to 18-10, but it proved a killer blow.

within one minute of the restart, Keith Senior had extended that lead, and Leeds continued to score tries at regular intervals in thye second half – Rob Burrow crossing for a brace of tries. There were also tries for Jamie Thackray, Brent Webb and Danny McGuire, with Kevin Sinfield landing 8 conversions in all.

It was a big win for Leeds, who bounced back from Tuesday night's disappointment with a, in the end, resounding 52-10 win.
