With the launch of the full Betfred Championship 2022 season fixtures tomorrow we can advise you all that Leigh Centurions will play hosts to Whitehaven in the opening round of games at Leigh Sports Village on Saturday 29th January 2022, with a 3pm kick off.

Head of Rugby Chris Chester said: “It’s a tough start against a good Whitehaven side who finished the 2021 season strongly. The Betfred Championship will be very competitive next season and there won’t be any easy games.”

The full Betfred Championship fixtures will be announced tomorrow, Sunday, at 3pm.
