LEIGH Centurions maintained their 100 per cent start to the season with an impressive 29-10 win at Featherstone Rovers to pick up the Kingstone Press Performance of the Week Award.
It was Leigh’s second win in eight days over the same opposition after they knocked Rovers out of the Tetley’s Challenge Cup.
Coach Paul Rowley said: “Momentum and confidence are big things in sport, and we’ve got both of them at the moment. We played Featherstone the week before and we didn’t over-exert ourselves emotionally, so it wasn’t difficult to get back up for the game again.
“We have a very level-headed approach and know that we only get rewards when we’re working hard. That should ensure we never fall to complacency. It was a very good performance.”
Second row Kurt Haggerty was his side’s stand-out performance in their 29-10 at Featherstone Rovers, and himself picked up the award for Kingstone Press Championship Player Of The Week.
Haggerty was immersed in the action throughout as Leigh continued their undefeated start to the campaign.
Centurions coach Paul Rowley continued: “Kurt’s performance on Sunday came on the back of two outstanding displays in the previous two weeks. He came to us a little under cooked at the start of the season but has worked really hard to get up to speed.
“That culminated in his performance at Featherstone when he came up with his full bag of tricks. He showed the running game, handling skills and talent that everybody has seen in him season after season.”
Kurt is joined in the Kingstone Press Championship team of the week by teammates Tom Armstrong and Ryan Brierley.
