Leigh East 32 Saddleworth Rangers 24

LEIGH East collected their second win in five days with a brilliant comeback to deny Saddleworth Rangers.

Tom Worthington landed the first of six goals from a penalty to open the score.

When Saddleworth’s Ethan Langhorn was sent to the sinbin after 17 minutes, East took advantage when Ryan Hughes wriggled over for 8-0.

Another Saddleworth sin-binning after 36 minutes led to Gaskell putting East further in front when he pouched a Worthington kick.

Two Saddleworth tries sandwiched Adam Wilkes being shown a yellow card.

East kicked the restart out on the full, paving the way for Rangers to take the lead and extending it to 24-14 with a further try.

East then made the most of another Rangers yellow card, their third spell down to 12 men.

From the tap penalty Jamie Waters crossed for East, who bagged a crucial try through Worthington in the 76th minute and his conversion put Leigh back in front.

Adam Holland sealed victory, collecting the ball at dummy half on the final play and picking his way through for a fifth try.
