Here’s five talking points from Leeds Rhinos’ 28-6 defeat at Wigan Warriors.

1: Rhinos have scored 76 points in five games and conceded 144. Those are frightening statistics.

2: ‘Que sera sera, whatever will be will be, we’re going to Dewsbury’. Gallows humour from Rhinos’ travelling support.

3: Kicking early in the tackle count, when you have been starved of possession, is a bad idea.

4: It was good to see Jamie Jones-Buchanan back, more than half a year after he suffered what could have been a career-ending quad injury.

5: Zak Hardaker made a series of try-saving tackles to help the score down and scored all Leeds’ points – a highly creditable effort considering he had been laid up with a virus the day before.
