Official Match Report

Rovers brush aside Leigh

Featherstone showed just why they finished top of the Kingstone Press Championship for a fourth season in a row as they kicked off their play-off campaign with a comfortable 40-26 win over Leigh.

Sean Long's Rovers scored seven tries to move through to a Grand Final qualifier, with former Hull wingers Will Sharp and Tommy Saxton both grabbing a brace.

Matty Dale, another ex-Hull man, also scored, while Greg Worthington and Andrew Bostock also crossed, with Liam Finn goaling six times.

Ryan Brierly and Michael Ostick scored twice each for Leigh but their effort, with Gregg McNally's alongside it, was not enough.
