Magic fever hits this weekend as the Centurions travel up to the famous St James’ Park in Newcastle for 2021’s edition of the Betfred Super League’s Magic Weekend. Leigh face Hull Kingston Rovers in the final game of the weekend, kicking off at 5:30pm, and if the last meeting is anything to go on, expect fireworks!

The Centurions will be wearing a special jersey in support of Cancer Research UK, and club owner Derek Beaumont along with twelve other riders, will be making the mammoth journey by bicycle from the LSV stadium, leaving on Saturday morning, also to support the cause.

The game will be broadcast on Sky Sports, however you can still follow the action through play-by-play updates across our social media.
