Wigan Warriors ran in seven tries without reply as they pulled off a comprehensive victory against an under-strength Leeds Rhinos side.

Michael McIlorum scored his first try of the season to put Wigan ahead and Sam Tomkins touched down soon after.

George Williams, who kicked just two conversions from six attempts, scored Wigan’s third try before the break.

Oliver Gildart scored twice in quick succession before Tom Davies and Williams wrapped up a comfortable win.

Leeds, who could not finish lower than second before the Super 8s split going into the game, rarely threatened to put points on the board at the DW Stadium.

The hosts dominated the game and their attacking display saw them reach a century of Super League tries scored this term when Davies crossed late on.

Wigan move up to seventh following the win as they moved above Huddersfield after they were defeated by Hull FC.

Leeds, who were without 13 players and gave debuts to Harry Newman, Harvey Whiteley and Alex Sutcliffe, saw their four-point gap on third place cut to three points thanks to Hull’s victory.

Wigan: Tomkins, Davies, Gelling, Gildart, Burgess, Williams, Leuluai, Nuuausala, McIlorum, Sutton, Isa, Bateman, O’Loughlin.

Replacements: Clubb, Powell, Tautai, Wells.

Leeds: Walker, Briscoe, Keinhorst, Sutcliffe, Newman, Goldin, Lilley, Garbutt, Jones-Buchanan, Baldwinson, Ormondroyd, Ablett, Mullally.

Replacements: Oledzki, Jordan-Roberts, Smith, Whiteley.
