Official Match Report

Ruthless Leigh win again

Leigh maintained their fantastic 100 per cent winning record after withstanding a late fightback from Sheffield to defeat the Eagles 32-24.

The Centurions looked be coasting as they led 26-6 at half-time thanks to tries from Ryan Brierley, Bob Beswick, Chris Hankinson, Matt Sarsfield and Sam Hopkins, three of which were converted by Brierley.

The Eagles' solitary response came from Scott Turner touching down and he went on to complete a hat-trick of tries in the second half.

James Davey also crossed as Sheffield cut the gap to two points, but Tom Armstrong's late score ensured Leigh made it 18 wins from as many Kingstone Press Championship matches.
