Jukes: Our work rate is paying dividends

Neil Jukes praised the work ethic of his team and his staff after the Centurions’ latest victory.

Leigh have recorded successive home wins, most recently easing past Warrington 22-8 at the Leigh Sports Village on Thursday.

“We want to be a team where everything we get we earn and work hard for it and we showed that through our defence tonight,” he said.

“The staff are working extremely long days and if you keep working hard enough then you get the rewards.”

Jukes was also happy with the progress his team have made so far this season.

“We’ve come through a real big block of six there,” he added.

“On another day we come away with eight points instead of six, but we can’t really complain.”

The Centurions came up with a near faultless performance in the first half which really helped to keep the Wire at bay, according to Jukes.

“We started off like a house on fire,” he said. “I think we dropped one ball in about 13 sets, kicked really well and only gave three penalties away.

“We’re a very tough team to play against when you do that.”
