PAUL Rowley hopes any ‘lapsed’ Leigh fans will be back for more having had their appetite whetted by last Sunday’s thrilling win over Bradford.

Nearly 7,500 fans were at the Sports Village – Leigh’s best home crowd for 10 years.

“It was a great game and a great occasion,” said the Centurions coach.

“It would have got 10 out of 10 for drama. I hope anyone who was at the game for the first time will be back for more.

“The same goes for any ‘lapsed’ fans who maybe haven’t seen us for a while.”

Leigh fought back from 20-6 down at half-time against the Bulls to eventually win 36-24 with a Sean Penkywicz try in the dying moments sealing the game.
