Official Report / Commentary

Leigh Centurions took a giant step towards securing a place in next season's First Utility Super League with a 25-18 win at Hull KR.

It was their fourth victory from four games in the Qualifiers Super 8s and the second time this season a Kingstone Press Championship side had come to the Lightstream Stadium and left with a win after Oldham RLFC knocked Rovers out of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup.

Rovers started strongly and raced into a 12-0 lead, Ken Sio and Josh Mantellato crossing for tries with the latter kicking two penalties.

But they were then blown away by Leigh, who scored 22 unanswered points to take control of the game.

Sam Hopkins and Andrew Dixon ran in for tries, with Martyn Ridyard adding the extras, to level the score.

Leigh deservedly went in front for the first time when Matty Dawson capitalised on a Ben Cockayne error, although Ridyard missed the conversion.

Josh Drinkwater scored under the posts for a converted try but Matty Marsh gave Rovers a lifeline with Mantellato making it a four-point deficit.

Ridyard's penalty from 30 metres gave Leigh a six-point cushion going into the final 10 minutes and then he dropped a goal to seal the win.
