Leigh hammer wasteful Huddersfield

Leigh Centurions issued a statement of intent as they hammered Huddersfield 30-0.

Neil Jukes’ side spent large parts of the evening on their own line, but a mammoth defensive effort, along with a clinical offensive display, saw them leave comfortable victors.

Leigh were 12-0 ahead at half-time thanks to tries through Adam Higson and Jamie Acton.

The game was still in the balance for large parts of the second-half, but when Danny Tickle scored from a kick in-goal, the hosts ran away with is as further tries through Ben Reynolds and Sam Hopkins added gloss to the scoreline.

A full report will be in Monday’s League Express.
