Leigh have named their 19 man squad ahead of tomorrow’s Super 8 qualifier against Wakefield at the Sports Village.

Without a win in the qualififers so far, Leigh are desperate to pick up a win and reignite their promotion challenge.

Leigh beat Wakefield in the Challenge Cup earlier this season but since then Trinity have appointed a new coach in Brian Smith and recruited several new players,

Jamie Acton, Greg Worthington, Tom Spencer and Jonny Pownall are named in the squad having missed out at Salford.

Second rower Gareth Hock is out for at least a fortnight after having a clean-up operation on his knee.

The Leigh Centurions squad is: 1 Gregg McNally, 3 Greg Worthington, 4 Tom Armstrong, 5 Liam Kay, 6 Martyn Ridyard, 7 Ryan Brierley, 8 Fuifui Moimoi, 9 Bob Beswick, 10 Oliver Wilkes, 13 Sam Barlow, 15 Jonny Pownall, 18 Tom Spencer, 19 Kurt Haggerty, 20 Sam Hopkins, 21 Jamie Acton, 22 Andrew Dixon, 23 Martin Aspinwall, 29 Jake Emmitt, 30 Micky Higham.
