First visit to Headingley for me today. Bit odd as I lived 5 minutes walk from the ground for a while. Had Nigel Wood sat 4 seats across from me. He was sat in the padded seats though while I had to make do with the plain wooden ones. I can honestly say that's the first time I've been in a wooden seat at a ground in 25 years of going to league and football matches.
Good showing from Leigh and a much deserved league and playoff double. Hopefully they can keep the same standards next year and give the bottom 4 of SL a fright or two.
The right edge defence from Rovers was pretty much non-existent in the first half and left them way too much to do. They tightened it up and made a game of it though and the atmosphere was superb once they got back into it. Leigh a bit too classy in the end though. Not sure how the Fev player didn't receive a red at the end for the high shot, looked like a shocker.
As in the Leigh-Fev game at the LSV, thought Will Sharpe was good in a losing team. I would've thought somebody would take a punt on him at SL level or does he just turn it on when I'm in the crowd?
All in all, a great day for RL, three very enjoyable Grand Finals. Hope next Saturday's can live up to today's offerings.
