LEIGH’S five game winning run to kick off the season has delighted coach Paul Rowley.

Centurions produced a stunning second half display at Featherstone on Sunday to overhaul a 6-4 interval deficit and win 40-6.

It maintained Leigh’s winning start to the year and kept them top of the Kingstone Press Championship. Leigh have won their last 15 games, a run which stretches back to July 2014.

“The first five games up to the Challenge Cup tie were always going to be important,” said Rowley.

“To have negotiated that cluster of games and claim the scalps of Bradford, London, Halifax, Featherstone and Doncaster is a huge achievement and one we should be proud of.”

On Friday, Leigh turn their attention to the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup and another meeting with London, a side they beat in the league just a few weeks ago.

Broncos are still without a head coach following the departure of Joey Grima after their defeat at Leigh.

Last Sunday they suffered a shock defeat at Whitehaven who hadn’t won a game all year.

Centurions have no fresh injury concerns ahead of Friday’s game though Greg Worthington is a doubt having missed the game at his former club Featherstone.
