Jukes: No complaints with the result

Leigh Centurions’ boss Neil Jukes had no complaints after seeing his team fall to a second successive defeat against Widnes Vikings on Saturday.

The Centurions were beaten 37-24 at home by the lowly Vikings and Jukes admitted the visitors deserved the victory.

“Too many people had an off day for us – we didn’t show enough desire and just looked like a team that didn’t want to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in.

“We got what we deserved today. I was nervous with the way we defended our tryline because we didn’t seem to grasp what we had practised in training.

“As a team we will go through some tough periods this season. Our home games are really important to us and we have made this place a bit of a fortress so to lose today was very disappointing.”
