Kingstone Press Performance of the Week – Leigh Centurions
Centurions coach Paul Rowley said: “There was a lot of attention on the game and a big focus from Sheffield to spoil that party.
“There was a bit of pressure on but the boys responded in best possible fashion. They were outstanding from start to finish: they were tough, skillful, and then walked away humble.
“For me, every billboard in Leigh should be plastered with this occasion. It’s 110 years of history and it’s absolutely huge.”
Kingstone Press Try of the Week – Richard Wilkinson (Doncaster)
Doncaster player-coach Paul Cooke said: “Richard is a young boy with some real ability.
“We’ve had him in and out of the team, but he’s training hard and deserves his opportunity.
“We’ll dip his toes in the water this year and look after him, but he’s quick, smart, talks well and was good in defence against Rochdale as well.”
