Leeds hooker Liam Hood was the man with the Midas touch after scoring the match-winning try that ended Warrington's unbeaten record in a gripping 26-18 Stobart Super League clash at Headingley.
The 20-year-old scored on his debut to put the gloss on the champions' 36-14 win at Castleford a week ago and was the hero after pouncing for the all-important try that takes the Rhinos to within a point of the leaders.
Warrington, who were without Brett Hodgson, Michael Monaghan and Chris Bridge, fought back from 12-0 down to draw level by the break and they trailed by just two points until Hood seized on a defensive blunder by Richie Myler on 67 minutes to seal their fate.
Young Leeds centres Zak Hardaker and Kallum Watkins both scored tries to celebrate their call-up into England coach Steve McNamara's elite training squad - with a further try from Danny McGuire - while captain Kevin Sinfield kicked five goals to move to within 15 points of becoming the highest scorer in the club's history.
Matty Blythe, Chris Hill and Ben Westwood scored a try apiece for the Wolves with Lee Briers successful with the three conversions.
Hull came from behind to claim a 22-10 victory and consign St Helens to their fourth game without a win.
The Black and Whites produced a resilient performance to keep chipping away at a Saints side low on confidence, if not commitment. Saints had led 10-4 and appeared in control until the game turned when Jordan Turner raced the length of the field from a sloppy Josh Perry pass.
Three Danny Tickle penalties had more or less clinched it for Hull before Wade McKinnon, who also crossed over in the first half, nipped on to a Richard Horne grubber to twist the knife, and send the Saints fans in the 14,875 crowd home unhappy.
Ade Gardner and Tony Puletua touched down for Saints, with Jamie Foster adding a conversion.
