Jukes admits defeat was deserved

Leigh boss Neil Jukes had no complaints after seeing 12-man Centurions fall 36-22 to Salford at Magic Weekend on Sunday.

Adam Higson’s dismissal 25 minutes from time effectively ended Leigh’s hopes of victory and Jukes admitted it was the correct decision.

Leigh coach Neil Jukes on the dismissal of winger Adam Higson.

“It was a straight red,” said Jukes. “It didn’t help, that’s for sure. It made the task a lot more difficult.

“What also didn’t help was our completion rate. At fifty-odd per cent completion rate, when they were at nearly ninety, we don’t help ourselves.

“Every time we scored a try, we backed it up on the next set with an error.

“I don’t think we had the rub of the green. When the margins are really close, you need a bit of luck and we didn’t get much today.”
