Leigh Centurions have announced their 19-man squad ahead of Sunday’s Kingstone Press Championship Round 20 game at Workington Town (3pm).

The Centurions are currently second in the Kingstone Press Championship with 32pts from 17 games and two points behind Bradford Bulls but with two games in hand.

Town are in tenth position in the table with nine points from 19 games.

When the sides met at LSV earlier in the season the Centurions won 54-6 with Gareth Hock marking his debut with two tries.

Last season the Centurions withstood a second half comeback by Town to run out 28-16 winners in Cumbria and then followed up by beating Town 22-12 on Heritage Day at LSV.

This fixture is the start of a busy month for the Centurions as they complete their Championship fixtures with home games against Hunslet Hawks (8 July), Featherstone Rovers (12 July), Dewsbury Rams (22 July) and Doncaster (26 July). Their final away game of the Championship season is at Bradford Bulls on 19 July.
