Duffy happy with halves

Leigh Centurions coach John Duffy (pictured) praised halfbacks Ben Reynolds’ and Josh Woods’ running games in Friday night’s impressive 36-10 win at Dewsbury.
The Centurions weathered a first-half storm that saw them lead by just two points at the break to keep their hosts scoreless after the restart.
With Jarrod Sammut unavailable, both Woods and Reynolds were on the scoresheet in a performance that pleased their coach.
Duffy said: “We’re trying to get our halves to run a bit more this year.
“There were some great plays by our halves, a lot better than last year.
“When everybody’s in motion like that we’re a threat.
“It was a real team performance in the second half.
“It was a really tough game and Dewsbury stuck to their game plan.
“Our discipline was poor in the first half – we got in some good positions and would then give away a penalty.
“We asked for a bit more discipline in the second half we got that and when we did get some good ball I thought we were really classy, especially Ben Reynolds and Gregg (McNally) out on that left side, I thought they were sensational.
“Danny Addy had 80 minutes through the middle and that was a great effort.
“It was a real tough gritty performance and the second half was really professional – no tries was really pleasing for me.
“There was a lot of goal line D at the back of the game and we coped with it well.”
