7:43 am on 15 February 2009

Leeds made it two wins out of two in defence of their English Super League title following an emphatic 18-4 victory over Wakefield.

Wakefield's squad had been decimated through injury and illness but they were in the hunt for another shock victory after winning in Wigan last weekend

However the Leeds debutant Danny Buderus sent Ian Kirke over for the match-clinching try seven minutes from the end.

Wigan's poor start continued at the KC Stadium as they were deservedly beaten 18-10 by Hull and St Helens beat Warrington 26-14.
