Leigh Centurions have named their 19 man squad ahead of Friday’s Betfred Super League Round 11 game against Leeds Rhinos at LSV (8pm).
Leigh Centurions Head Coach Neil Jukes said: ” Leeds Rhinos are a well respected and established club, and one of, if not the most, successful in Super League. It is a massive occasion, just like every game coaching Leigh Centurions is for me personally.
“It is our first home game in the Betfred Super League and against a quality side, sprinkled with players who have played at the highest level of the game for many years. Hopefully we will have learned the lessons from the Castleford game.
“Part of the process of building the club is to improve week on week on our actions on and off the field to ensure that we are the best we can be. It will be a fantastic occasion and one we will savour.”
French international Antoni Maria and Australian forward Lachlan Burr are included in the squad and if selected in the 17 will earn Heritage Numbers 1425 and 1426 respectively.
