FUIFUI Moimoi scored his first try for Leigh on Friday and his celebration was something special.

Moimoi vaulted the advertising boards, ran through the fans then raced up the steps to the back of the North Stand.

As he returned to the pitch, fans slapped him on the back and gave him high fives. the celebration was all the more remarkable given he’d been suffering with flu and very nearly didn’t play.

A video of the celebration from Leigh Centurions TV clocked up thousands of views on YouTube and made headlines in Australia where Moimoi is still highly regarded after 12 years at the Eeels.

Centurions beat London Broncos 64-12.
