“The Summer Bash is a great concept and it’s great for the Championship,” he told LCTV.

“I’ve experienced the Magic Weekend the last few years and it was good to have a big occasion and play in front of a front of a big crowd. Everyone was singing and cheering away and enjoying themselves.

“It was nice to sneak over for a try- two-yarders are about my distance now, I’ll leave the long range ones to the likes of Gregg McNally.

Higham is delighted to be back at the club where it all began for him, surrounded by quality players.

“I started my career with Leigh and I’ve always wanted to finish my career with Leigh,” he said.

“Leigh are a skilful team with some quality lads, 26 wins on the trot is special and it’s good to be part of it.”
