Swinton Lions 12-20 Leigh Centurions
Chambers reign begins with loss
New coach Gary Chambers tasted defeat in his first game in charge of Swinton Lions as Leigh Centurions ran out 20-12 winners in the Kingstone Press Championship clash at Leigh Sports Village.
Leigh went 6-0 ahead in the fifth minute thanks to Gregg McNally's touchdown, which was converted by Martyn Ridyard, who then went over himself in the 22nd minute after Kevin Penny's converted score had levelled things up at 6-6.
The Centurions came out firing after the interval and Matthew Gardner's double, with Ridyard adding the extras to the first, put them on course for victory.
Neil Holland's converted try two minutes from time managed to earn the Lions a bonus point.
