Preview: Keighley v Leigh

Brendon Rawlins remains sidelined for the Cougars while full back Dan Belcher faces more tests on his ankle injury.

Cougars lost 62-18 against Barrow in midweek but ran Toulouse close in the Carnegie Challenge Cup.

Coach Barry Eaton said: “We have to understand we’ve made a step up in class and if you give the ball away cheaply against Championship sides, they’ll punish you for it.”

Leigh travel to Cougar Park with no injury concerns. Assistant coach Paul Rowley said: “We’re fully fit and we’ve got nobody suspended, so Ian (Millward) is going to have some tough decisions this week on who he leaves out.

“We’ve also got the dual-registered players back so there are going to be some good players who don’t get in the side.”

He added: “I don’t know too much about Keighley but we’ll be doing a lot of video work on them on Thursday and that should give us a good idea.”
