Warrington Wolves beat Leeds Rhinos by a single point thanks to a late drop goal from Lee Briers.

A last-minute drop goal from Lee Briers has secured a narrow 19-18 win for Warrington Wolves in their match against Leeds Rhinos.

The home side grabbed an early lead through Mick Higham, but Leeds soon found their way into the game, with tries from Ryan Hall and Liam Sutcliffe giving them a half-time lead.

Hall added a second at the start of the second half, but Stefan Ratchford soon found the try line for the hosts to level the scores.

Zak Hardaker scored a try and kicked the conversion to restore the visitors' lead, but Brett Hodgson managed the same for Warrington moments later.

Briers had two failed attempts at the posts as he looked for a match-winning drop goal in the final minutes of the game, but was able to find the target with a kick in the 79th minute, securing the win for Wolves.
