LEIGH boss Paul Rowley expects a stern test at Featherstone in a repeat of last year’s Kingstone Press Championship Grand Final.

The clubs met four times last season and Centurions won them all but Rowley says there is no chance of complacency from his side.

“We had to be at our very best in each of those games,” he said.

“Featherstone are a tough proposition at any time especially on their own ground and they have a huge squad at their disposal.

“They will be pumped up to face us and I’m looking forward to seeing the new stands open at Post Office Road because it should make for a great atmosphere.

“The Featherstone club and fans deserve great credit for what they have done in building those new stands – they are to be congratulated for their passionate support.”
