Higson scores Try of the Week
11:24am Tuesday 20th May 2014 in Centurions
LEIGH Centurions' Adam Higson was awarded the Kingstone Press Try of the Week for his spectacular finish in Sunday’s 50-20 win over Doncaster.
Boss Paul Rowley said: “If it had have been in the NRL or Super League, it would have been trending on YouTube by now. It was a world-class try.
“He had to check his run, so he didn’t catch it in full flight, and that gave the covering defenders an opportunity. He looked certain to be bundled into touch, but came up with perfect diving finish.
“Adam’s been absolutely outstanding all season and this was just the latest example. He’s a big fella and a quality winger in all aspects.”
Two Leigh players also made it into the Kingstone Press Championship Team of the Week.
1 Ryan Fieldhouse (Halifax)
2 Lewis Graham (Keighley Cougars)
