Wounded Warriors march to victory
Wigan effortlessly overcame the absence of a full pack of forwards to hammer defending champions Leeds 50-8 and consolidate their place at the top of Stobart Super League.
The Warriors were in ruthless mood, much to the delight of Wigan fan Rio Ferdinand, who was among the 16,113 Headingley crowd to marvel at the skills of Sam Tomkins and company as they stretched their team's winning run to 11 matches.
Wigan may have had six regular members of their pack missing through injury and suspension but that not stop their remaining forwards scoring their first three tries of a fierce and occasionally spiteful Roses encounter.
The Warriors' inexperienced pack more than held their own which gave Tomkins, making his first appearance at Headingley since being booed while playing for England last June, the chance to weave his magic. He was involved in four of his side's nine tries to underline his talent, while winger Josh Charnley continued his prolific run with an 18-point haul.
Joining Charnley in touching down were Jeff Lima, Liam Farrell, Sean O'Loughlin, George Carmont, Anthony Gelling, Brett Finch and Thomas Leuluai (two), with Ryan Hall providing both of the hosts' tries in response.
Salford claimed their second big-name scalp within a week with a sensational 34-30 comeback victory over the Catalan Dragons.
Salford followed up their Magic Weekend win over Huddersfield by denying Catalan the chance to move into second spot in the Stobart Super League table and continue their own push for a play-off place.
The Reds looked down and out as they were blitzed in the opening exchanges and conceded four tries to trail 20-0 after just 24 minutes.
But the hosts then scored 28 points without reply, despite being down to 11 men at one stage, as Daniel Holdsworth and Vinnie Anderson were both sin-binned for dissent by referee Steve Ganson.
Then in a frantic finale Catalan looked like getting the upper hand when Remi Casty touched down. But back came the Reds and Jodie Broughton's second try of the game on 70 minutes, converted by Holdsworth, gave the Reds an eight-point cushion which meant Vincent Duport's late try was not enough for the Dragons.
