Official Report / Commentary

Leigh Centurions tuned up for the Million Pound Game with a routine 41-4 victory over London Broncos in their final game of the Qualifiers Super 8s. 

Matthew Fleming and Harrison Hansen crossed in the first half for the Centurions as they opened up a 12-0 lead.

And after the break replacement Sam Hopkins touched down before James Clare, Ben Reynolds, Josh Drinkwater and Anton Maria all went over to leave the Centurions with four wins from seven games in the Qualifiers and still fighting for Betfred Super League survival.

In the midst of the onslaught Matt Gee went over for a consolation for the Broncos – whose promotion hopes were ended last weekend – but Neil Jukes' visitors will now eagerly await Catalans Dragons' clash with Widnes Vikings in the south of France on Saturday.

Leigh coach Neil Jukes said: “It takes us into that final with a bit of momentum and a bit of confidence."

He added: "But whoever we play it is going to be something new for me, for all of our players and something we will have to get a grip of and try and handle that pressure as best we can.”

Broncos boss Andrew Henderson said: “I feel let down and embarrassed by that performance, the nature of how we played. There were signs last week and I was hoping we would make amends but I think we were even worse tonight.

“We just were nowhere near at the races. A lot of players had put the cue on the rack and were not prepared to go down fighting.”
