Leigh’s Ryan Brierley says it would be good for the game if Catalans Dragons were to get their first Super League title this year.
Tough 24 hours, but is what it is, as players we will keep turning up, doing the best we can under tough circumstances. Catalan unbelievable team and the fans were brilliant. Would be good for Rugby League if they were to go and win it.

Classy tweet from Sam Tomkins.
We had Aaron Moore as our referee last night for the first time. It might have been an easy game to ref with it being so one sided but i thought he was really good.
His communication with the players for the full 80 was first class. Impressive for such a young referee
