'The Centurion' is the official match day magazine of Leigh Centurions. For those of you travelling across to Leigh, here's a flavour of this week's contents. Have a safe journey.
Head Coach PAUL ROWLEY looks back with DAVE PARKINSON to all the games since Good Friday.
NATHAN LAWRENSON chats to ROB PARKER about the Wigan game. Rob feels that the final score line was a bit harsh on Leigh and enthuses about the fantastic support.
I’m going to have to have a word with MIKE HULME! This week, he’s sympathising with referees, over the introduction of new rulings this season.
CEO TREVOR BARTON compares the two recent defeats – where the score lines were identical, but the performances were totally different.
GARETH WALKER, of League Express provides two features this week. He ridicules Dennis Betts’ moans about the Easter schedule, contrasting what it is like for Super League and Championship players. It goes without saying that they have life tougher in our league! His second feature highlights the efforts of Coventry Bears, as they strive for a place in next season’s Championship One.
DAVE PARKINSON has a host of Facts ‘N Stats to update, and he reports on two crushing defeats for the Under 20’s – it’s not been a good fortnight for the clubs defensive strategies!
MAURICE JONES has been a busy man, catching the action from our four of our last five games, including last week’s cup tie.
Love RL correspondent, TONY WILLIAMS makes a case for not ‘dissing’ the RFL – I’ll have to have a word with him too! He is withering in his criticism of the BBC and their coverage of the Challenge Cup draw.
ALAN EDGE doffs his flat cap to a couple of incidents in a recent Castleford v Wakefield ‘derby’. He also has an in-depth look at our visitors from Batley and sees similarities in the decline in attendances, at LSV and the Loverugbyleague.com stadium.
ALAN PLATT updates us on Touchdown news, and SHARON DILLON has the latest Junior Centurions news
JOHN RODDY has information on the format of the club’s latest venture – Leigh Centurions TV - and divulges what it will cost fans!.
There’s a new look to the SQUAD information, as we look to increase player sponsorship, and PARKY PIG reports on the great Easter Egg extravaganza.
All this is packed into 24 full pages of information, in our 32 page programme.
Once again, it is hoped that, publishers permitting, ‘The Centurion’ will be on sale at our town centre retail outlet later this week.
