Leigh look to rotate squad

Adam Higson and Sam Hopkins could feature for Leigh as the Centurions look to rotate their squad for Sunday’s Co-operative Championship fixture with York.

Leigh assistant coach Paul Rowley said: “We’re all fighting fit, and we’ve got a healthy squad, but we may change a couple of things around this week.

“Against Widnes last week we were a bit loose in the first half with the ball in hand, but we defended very well. It’s coming to the end of the season and our defence is going OK, which is a good sign.”

He added: “In all of our remaining league fixtures we’ll be firm favourites to win with the bookies, but that makes it a little bit dangerous as well. We’re putting pressure on ourselves to concentrate on our performances.”

York could be unchanged as they look to secure a win that would keep them out of the relegation places for another week at least.

Knights lost 44-16 against Featherstone last week, but coach Dave Woods saw enough to be pleased. He said: “Our effort and commitment was really good, and we’ll probably run with the same squad.

“We asked for a big improvement on the Halifax game, and we got a good response. We’ll just ask for the same again – to start how we did last week, but to not have that little lull in the middle. We want to perform for longer.”
