LEIGH Centurions will return to Super League with a cracking set of opening contests next month.

Wigan twice, Warrington, St Helens and Leigh will make up five derby clashes in the first six rounds.

Another highlight will be John Duffy's men visiting Catalans Dragons on August bank holiday Monday, all being well with the coronavirus pandemic.

If all goes to plan, the first game in which Leythers will be able to attend and watch their heroes play in the top flight will be the round seven fixture at home against Huddersfield Giants.

Leigh's first game at the Leigh Sports Village, although behind closed doors, is set to against champions St Helens in round five.

Easter's battle with Warrington will be on neutral turf, with the opening two rounds of fixtures all being played at one venue for Covid-19 reasons.

Leigh will end the regular rounds at Huddersfield in mid-September.
