Fev skipper Spears wary of Leigh

Featherstone co-captain Tim Spears is well aware of the threat that Leigh will bring the Big Fellas Stadium on Sunday.

The Centurions have opened their 2015 Championship campaign with four straight victories, and Spears knows that Rovers face a test.

“Everyone is well aware of Leigh and they seem a confident bunch,” he said.

“They do have attacking threats all over the park but I feel they are structurally very sound and a bit similar to us in that respect.

“They are well drilled and when opportunities are created, they’ve got the pace particularly through their half backs to finish them off.

“It will probably be one of our biggest challenges this season and the kind of game you want to do really well in. The boys are buzzing and looking forward to another great atmosphere at the Big Fella’s Stadium.”

One Centurion who will be familiar to Fev fans is Greg Worthington, a former Rover who has been an ever-present for the Centurions so far this season.

“Greg is a good person and a great player from a good family who spent a number of successful years at Rovers,” added Spears.

“We certainly won’t be friends on the pitch on Sunday though!

“All the players are looking forward to another great atmosphere on Sunday. I know the club has laid a challenge down to Leigh to bring a many fans as Bradford did and I hope they do too.

“To see the stands full a fortnight ago was a great sight and is proof that the Big Fella’s Stadium can comfortably host big matches. We’ll be looking to put in a performance to match and we can’t wait.”
