Rowley thrilled with tie against SL Champions

Leigh coach Paul Rowley is relishing his side’s Challenge Cup tie against Leeds.

The Centurions were paired with the Rhinos on Tuesday morning, and Rowley says it is the tie his side wanted in the quarter finals.

He said: “They’re the world champions so you couldn’t ask for a bigger or more attractive game.

“It’s up to our club and the town to get behind the players and fill the stadium. It is amazing what effect a vocal crowd can have on a team.”

Rowley understands why the remaining six Super League sides wanted to be paired with Leigh, but insists being the underdogs will be beneficial to his side.

He said: “I’m sure every club wanted to play us and I’m quite happy with that. There will be no pressure on us. We can relax and hopefully do ourselves justice.

“I’ve got the utmost respect for Leeds and their coach. I like watching Leeds and it will be a privilege to be able to host them.”
