Leigh have maintained their 100% winning record in the Qualifiers after securing a hard-fought 18-25 victory against Hull KR at the Lightstream Stadium.
The Championship side were trailing 12-6 at the interval but a much-improved second-half performance, including three tries in five minutes saw the Centurions come away with a massive two points in the fight for promotion.
Leigh were guilty of giving away cheap field possession early on, conceding several penalties, the latter of which Josh Mantellato duly obliged to put the first points on the board for the Robins.
Mantellato added his name to the scoresheet, plucking a towering pass from Chris Clarkson out of the sky before dashing across.
The Centurions continued to be masters of their own downfall, conceding another penalty which Mantellato gracefully accepted, giving his team a 12-0 lead.
Eight minutes into the second half and Leigh were back on level terms courtesy of Andrew Dixon’s four-pointer which was subsequently converted by Martyn Ridyard.
Leigh continued to turn the screw, Drinkwater touching down underneath the posts after Cory Paterson’s darting run.
The final quarter was set up for a dramatic finish after Matthew Marsh crashed over before Mantellato kicked the extras to bring the Robins back to within four points.
A Ridyard penalty ensured the Centurions maintained a one-score cushion entering into the final stages of the match.
Ridyard sealed victory for his side with a drop goal in the final two minutes.
