Challenge Cup double header at Leigh Sports Village

James Gordon

Leigh and Swinton will play their respective Challenge Cup third round games back-to-back on Saturday April 6th.

The Lions have been playing at Leigh Sports Village, home of the Centurions, since leaving the Willows when it was closed at the end of the 2011 season.

They will host Toulouse for a 3pm kick-off, while Leigh’s game against amateur side East Leeds will follow at 5.30pm.

The prize is a place in the fourth round of this season’s Tetley’s Challenge Cup, and a potential clash against Super League opposition.

The last Challenge Cup game played at the ground was Leigh’s 60-12 quarter-final defeat to Leeds in May.
