LEIGH assistant coaches Neil Jukes and Paul Anderson have emerged as early favourite with the bookies to take over as the club’s new boss following the shock departure of Paul Rowley today.

Others listed on the Bet Victor website include former Leigh coach Ian Millward (6/1), currently assistant coach with NRL side St George Illawarra Dragons.

Huddersfield assistant coach Keiron Purtill is another candidate to have been mentioned locally along with Leigh hooker Micky Higham.

Rowley resigned on Thursday morning citing personal reasons but the club is yet to issue a statement.
