LEIGH Centurions favourite Fuifui Moimoi made history in the game against Featherstone.

The former Parramatta Eels prop who joined Leigh at the end of last year scored a hat-trick of tries as Centurions thrashed Featherstone 52-18.

He later revealed it was the first time he’d scored three in a game in his long career.

Moimoi was overlooked for the Man of the Match Award which went to Ryan Brierley who also scored a hat-trick.

But the Leigh fans made their views known by responding to the announcement with chants of “Fui! Fui! Fui!”.
