Leigh looking to march on

Fully-fit Leigh Centurions are aiming for their seventh Co-operative Championship win of the season on Sunday.

Assistant coach Paul Rowley watched Leigh beat Sheffield 44-8 in last week’s Bramall Lane clash, but insists his side can only get better.

He said: “I don’t think we were at our best. We were inconsistent in a few areas that we’re normally very good, and we’ve worked on those this week and the lads are keen not to let our standards drop.”

He added: “Hunslet are a team that we’ve not come across yet, but we played them last year in the Northern Rail Cup and they’re a gritty, determined team.

“They’re not doing too bad since their promotion to the Co-operative Championship. They’re certainly capable of causing shocks and they’ve made great strides since last year.”

Hawks coach Paul March has recalled Matthew Harding from Gateshead and hopes to complete a loan deal for York’s Dennis Tuffour ahead of Sunday’s clash.

March said: “We’re struggling for numbers and there are players with knocks so we haven’t been able to finalise the squad yet, but Matty will figure at some point and hopefully we can get Dennis out there for us as well.”

Hunslet lost 28-6 against Toulouse last week. March said: “We played well for half an hour but then we fell into old habits. That needs rectifying on Sunday.”
