LEIGH Centurions are at full strength for Saturday’s Super 8 qualifer against Hull KR at the Sports Village.

Paul Rowley’s side have won their last 31 games at home but Ladbrokes Challenge Cup finalists Hull KR will provide a stern test.

With the Kingstone Press League Leaders’ Shield already won, the real business of the Super 8 qualifiers takes centre stage.

The bottom four from Super League join the top four from the Championship in a mini league. The top three will be promoted to the top flight while the fourth and fifth placed teams will play off in the “Million Pound Match”.

Leigh have four games at home and three away, and arguably their toughest challenge is on Saturday.

With the backline virtually picking itself, Rowley admitted he was spoilt for choice in the forwards.

The Leigh squad is: McNally, Higham, Higson, Dixon, Barlow, Brierley, Emmitt, Beswick, Worthington, Hock, Wilkes, Ridyard, Pownall, Armstrong, Moimoi, Goulden, Hopkins, Kay, Aspinwall.
