Leigh coach John Duffy has hit back at Toronto boss Brian McDermott after he described the Centurions as “bullies”.
The Centurions went down to a 46-12 defeat against the Wolfpack in Canada last Saturday.
And McDermott has since claimed that his players suffered “gouging” and “testicle grabbing” by some Leigh players.
In response to McDermott’s comments, Duffy told the Leigh Journal: “He [McDermott] seems like he has spat out his dummy because we were aggressive with them.
“The words he has chosen are not true. They showed their class and what they are about and won the game.
“So, I don’t see why he has to come out with rubbish like that. To use ‘bully’ is a strong word and they need to look closer to home.
“I don’t know why he used that sort of term towards this club.”
