“Hello darkness my old friend” Wigan fans gutted by another scoreless showing – How social media reacted to Leeds’ win over Wigan

Leeds created history with 14-0 win over Wigan at the DW Stadium tonight. The Rhinos became the first side in the Super League era to keep the Warriors scoreless at home as they jumped up to fifth in the table on the back of an impressive showing against last year’s Grand Finalists. Well, that was my take anyway, but what was yours? How did social media react.

Naturally, plenty of Leeds fans revelled in the fact they were the first team in 30 years to nil the Warriors at home also becoming the first team to keep Wigan scoreless at the DW Stadium.

Others enjoyed the fact Leeds were able to win despite a pair of yellow cards in the first half. Leeds even took the lead when down a man at the end of the first period.

However, plenty of Leeds fans were thankful for a win at Wigan. After all, the last time they won away at the DW Stadium was in September 2013.

But who were the stars of the show? Man of the Match Kruise Leeming received a lot of attention with. They’ve been impressed by his adaption to the halves this season.

Unsurprisingly, many Leeds fans wanted to take the opportunity to rub salt into Wigan fans’ wounds.

Speaking of Wigan fans, many blamed coach Adrian Lam for the poor performance.

Some feel he has to go despite delivering the League Leaders’ Shield last year and guiding them to Old Trafford.

One supporter even compared his tenure to Kerion Cunningham’s ill-fated time in the St Helens’ hot seat. After all he was a club legend who struggled to bring success to the side. Is Lam following in his footsteps?
