LEIGH’s free scoring scrum half Ryan Brierley has won the Kingstone Press Try of the Week Award.

Brierley finished a set play in fine style to register his side’s fourth try in a 28-16 victory over Workington Town.

Centurions coach Paul Rowley said: “It was a move we’ve done many times. We need to be nice and intricate around the ruck, with three tight passes creating space and Brierley supporting up the middle.

“When it’s executed well it’s a pretty special try. It takes a lot of skill and a lot of teamwork. The move started about 60 metres out, and Ryan had 40 metres to go to score. It was good to watch.”

Leigh also had two players named in the Championship Team of the Week - centre Tom Armstrong and forward Sam Barlow.
