I've gone for an away win. I don't think the home side have firing on all cylinders for the last few rounds.

Leigh very unlucky to lose both games in France last season, hopefully this is third time lucky,  I would have been much more confident if Robbie Mulhearn was fit and playing, and wondering what Mr Lam is considering doing with the returning O'Brien, for mine Moylan stays at the back and if Macnamara is fit which I don't know then interchange him and O'Brien, surely O'Brien must have been training for No6 by Mr Lam with this in mind, Moylans influence on the team and his own contribution should ensure he stays at No1.

Moylan is yer man this year for me. He's a real quality player. The 25,000 Leigh fans travelling over will surely be the difference to winning or losing!

Sooner or later Moylan is going to have to stay at 6 in both attack and defence, especially with Armstrong potentially coming in next year.

That's next year Rob, play to our strengths with what we have now and that is undoubtedly Matt Moylan at full back, there is a very obvious connection that going into this round of games he is joint top of the Man of Steel table.

Every time I watch Catalans i see their fullback being nothing more than a hindrance to their attack. He continually takes the wrong options and runs it into the man far too much. He doesn’t appear to join the line to create and space of overlaps in attack. 
 

Catalans haven’t been too bad but their pivots have alot to answer for and the edges are under utilised.

Not a very high quality game so far. Too many errors.

Yet another dropped ball from Catalans pivots. Their passing in the middle between halfbacks and pivots is truly shocking. 
 

Proved again there. Morgue had a 3 on 1 on the left and Johnstone waiting for a pass to run clear and he just runs into Hardaker while his centre/winger twiddle their thumbs.

Back to Catalans Dragons of old. Just not the same since Tomkins retired. Lacking on-field leadership. Leigh deservedly ahead.

Their passing and ball control is absolutely shocking. Especially in the middle of the pitch.

Stefan ratchford has made a career out of playing exactly like that!
