Leigh RUFC 12 Broughton Park RFC 14

LEIGH had to settle for the consolation of a losing bonus point and take positives from a good performance despite defeat to Broughton Park.

Leigh started stronger, but were twice undone by breakaway tries from Park’s right winger.

The hosts hit back before the break when Kieran Duffy provided the scoring pass for Calvin Crompton, Elliott Ryan converted.

A long ball from Rob Drake then sent Rob Shepherd over, but Ryan could not convert.

Both sides enjoyed periods of dominance but the visitors were delighted to hear the final whistle with Leigh camped on their line
