Kick off 8 p.m. at St Judes and it's being shown live on Wigan t.v. Wigan need to win one of their last two games (Leeds and Cas away) to finish top of the table again. It would also give them a home semi final v Huddersfield.

Being played at a different ground, and I don't think Leeds can take the mick about waterlogging. :wink:

Final score Wigan 24 - 0.

The scoreline didn't really represent the game, it was tough and uncompromising, two late tries from Havard and Kibula clinched it.

Kibula made one try and scored another, but the most pleasing of his performance last night for me was him getting stuck in at the brawl at the end. I've often thought he lacks that bit of aggression in defence. If he put a bit more aggression into his tackling we would have a hell of a player, possibly the closest direct replacement for Lockers.

He also made two or three big errors which could have proved costly, so much talent but he needs to control his game a bit.

Switched on for the 2nd half.
When Kibula came on his first touch was a knock on, 2nd touch a forward pass and then he was penalised which gave Leeds excellent field position. Later he made a great run and scored his try which was converted.
Seems to be a real talent but he appeared to lack concentration at times. He's training with the first team do hopefully a good off season and we can see more of him next year.

A bit of time on dual reg might bring out the mongrel in him. He does seem to hit hard after he's made an error or been hurt but a bloke of his size should be hurting the opposition with every tackle.

I think back to the biggest players I've seen for us, and they never really seemed to match up to the expectation. I'd rather get hit by Pryce, Dudson or Nu'uausala than Leuluai, McIorum or Barrett

While not quite on the same level, he's the equivalent of Gareth Hock (but without the aggression) for our U19's. Capable of barnstorming runs, able to change a game just by being there, brilliant handling, creates as many tries as the halves, but inconsistent, prone to errors, takes unnecessary risks with passes and offloads and too passive at times in defence.
