|Leigh (0) 0|
Centre Anthony Gelling scored two tries to guide champions Wigan Warriors to a derby victory against Leigh Centurions who failed to score a point, in only their third Super League meeting.
Tough conditions made expansive play difficult, and Gelling's first score on the back of a George Williams kick was the only try of the first half.
Joe Burgess limped off with an ankle injury but Wigan overcame his loss.
Williams crossed himself before Gelling's second ended Leigh hopes.
