Official Report / Commentary

Leigh Centurions held off a dramatic late London Broncos fightback to secure a 34-30 victory in their opening Qualifiers Super 8s match at Leigh Sports Village. 

Matty Dawson and debutant Mitch Brown scored two tries apiece, Reni Maitua crossed and Martyn Ridyard kicked seven goals as the Centurions opened up a 34-8 lead with just four minutes remaining. 

But the Broncos, whose only first-half try came through Ben Hellewell, refused to give in and, after both Jamie Soward and Greg Worthington were sent off for punching, they scored four tries through Apirana Pewhairangi (twice), Andy Ackers and Jack Bussey.
