Leigh Centurions make the short trip to the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Thursday to take on Warrington Wolves.
With a number of first-choice players away on England duty and potentially a couple more in the Combined All-Stars team, Wolves coach Steve Price confirmed in his press conference that some of his young players will need to step up to the plate against a Centurions side still searching for their first win of the season.
Kurt Haggerty’s side will be without Australian hooker Nathan Peats due to him being named in the Combined All-Stars team. Leigh could have a number of players back in contention including Jordan Thompson.
If Ryan Brierley makes one more appearance, it will be his 150th for Leigh Centurions.
If Ryan Brierley scores two tries, he will achieve 200 tries in his career.
Coach’s comments: interim head coach Kurt Haggerty
“We’ve got 18 who are ready to play so we’ll go with what we’ve got.
“We won’t dwell too much on the result against Hull FC and we’ve prepared well to go into the game against Warrington.
“They’ve picked themselves up and held themselves accountable for the result and they have trained really well this week.”
On Nathan Peats being selected for the All Stars: “It’s great for Nathan to get recognition and it will be good for him to get some minutes under his belt against England.”
The game will be available to view for Leigh and Warrington season ticket holders on OurLeague, and on Sky Sports to those who subscribe. The game kicks off at 7:45pm and sadly there will be no tickets for away fans as Warrington have a higher number of season ticket sales than they are currently allowed inside the stadium.
As always, get behind the lads and enjoy the game on Thursday.
