Chase back for Leigh

Top of the table Leigh have been given a boost with the return of Rangi Chase for the Whitehaven game.

The former England international is available for selection and could feature against Haven on Sunday. The Centurions won 40-18 at Dewsbury last week.

“I thought we were excellent up to probably 72 minutes on the clock,” Leigh coach Neil Jukes said.

“The key for us is that during our poor spells, not going to the bottom of the trough. It is trying to keep within that range of what is deemed acceptable.

“In every game there have been big periods where we have been excellent and big periods where we have been poor.

“We’ve got to find that bit of consistency so that we can get through the bigger games better. Across the board we probably just need that bit more consistency individually and ultimately that will help us as a team.”

Whitehaven have had a week off due to the postponement of their home game against London Broncos.

Haven will be without winger Elliot Miller with a dislocated shoulder.

“The way the pitch was and the state of our lads after the Easter weekend, I think having the week off was probably a blessing in disguise,” Whitehaven coach James Coyle said.

“We could have been busted going to Leigh but the week off has probably done us good because we could focus on this weekend.

“We’ve got no excuses, we’ve got to turn up with some good energy and give ourselves a chance by being enthusiastic and throwing what we can at Leigh.”
