i dont think Wire's third try could be classed as a consolation. Even with 15 to go it was an 8 point game. Leeds were under some pressure.
It seemed to me the breaks helped the metres (which sounds a bit obvious!) the long range tries or breaks down field followed by errors, etc. I'm working from a hazy memory but I'm guessing the the last two tries were Warrington's and almost consolation tries. There is the infamous stats quote and while it seemed competitive, the large error count and early ill discipline did the damage... and missing the half a dozen or so forward passes but that's par for the course at Headingley. If I'm right in thinking most of the Leeds tries came from sustained pressure, whereas three Warrington's came from deep. I'm still undecided if the 3 missed goals mattered too in that sense. I'd agree with your last line, but I think Leeds were a notch or two more than a "little" better, but I don't have the vocabulary to come up with that word!!
Leeds were better because they made fewer errors and were better disciplined. Their goal line defence was slightly better but then they missed a higher % of tackles so its hard to say their overall defence was better.
Considering the amount of Wire turnovers, Leeds should have been out of sight, yet they were nowhere near good enough to do that, McDermott seemed to be peed off with his teams performance too.
Leeds were better, but the commentary and analysis of this game seems way out.
