Leeds Rhinos: Player ratings from outstanding Super League win at Wigan Warriors
Leeds Rhinos ended an eight-year wait for a win at Wigan Warriors with a superb 14-0 win which boosts their hopes of a top-six finish in Betfred Super League.
It was the first time Wigan had failed to score in a game at DW Stadium and lifted Leeds to fifth in the table.
Rhinos ran in two tries in 10 minutes either side of half-time and were rarely troubled defensively.

2 Tom Briscoe: Stylish performance in his 350th career game. Strong carries away from Rhinos’ line 8
