Higson scores Try of the Week

First published 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)
3 Greg Worthington (Featherstone Rovers)
4 Tom Armstrong (Leigh Centurions)
5 Greg Scott (Dewsbury Rams)
6 Martyn Ridyard (Leigh Centurions)
7 Anthony Thackeray (Dewsbury Rams)
8 Luke Menzies (Swinton Lions)
9 Keith Holden (Halifax)
10 Jode Sheriffe (Keighley Cougars)
11 Matt Garside (Sheffield Eagles)
12 Lee Mitchell (Whitehaven)
13 Lee Doran (Whitehaven)
