Leigh Centurions have confirmed their 21-man squad for the Coral Challenge Cup Round Five tie against Hull Kingston Rovers on Sunday, March 15 at Hull College Craven Park.

Head Coach John Duffy is looking for his side to continue their winning start to the season after four successive wins in the Betfred Championship.

Leigh Centurions have enjoyed league wins over Dewsbury Rams, Sheffield Eagles, York City Knights and Halifax as well as a Fourth Round Coral Challenge Cup success over Batley Bulldogs which earned them a trip to Super League side

At the same stage of the competition last year, Leigh pushed the Super League team all the way but were beaten in the closing stages, bowing out 14-10. In fact, this is the third time in four seasons that the clubs have been paired together in the Challenge Cup.

Leigh’s next game at Leigh Sports Village is against Oldham in the Betfred Championship on Saturday, March 21. For match tickets, please call 01942 487888 or visit www.leightickets.co.uk. If you would like to book a place in the Premier Club, please email katy@leighrl.co.uk or call 01942 487898.
