He finished an off-the-cuff move which delighted his coach John Kear.
“We were on the last tackle inside our own 40 metres with Scott Leatherbarrow set up for a distance kick,” Kear said.
“Swinton are known as a good pressure team and rushed up to Scott, who showed great presence of mind to avoid the challenge.
“He then put in a Lee Briers-style ‘punt pass’ – a lateral kick that actually went backwards.
“Wayne then drew the fullback and released Ben Black to run 30 metres to the line.
“It was a great piece of composure by Scott Leatherbarrow in such an important game, and then great execution in drawing defenders and support play.”
