LEIGH boss John Duffy rued his side's drop off that saw Centurions go from 6-8 at the break to eventually lose 44-6.

Lewis Tierney had given the Super League newcomers, seeking their first win in the top-flight, the lead.

But they conceded 44 unanswered points at LSV in front of a crowd of just above 2,000. 

Of his side's late collapse Duffy said: "I think our completion rate went down to about to 34 per cent - we ended up on 50 per cent.

"It is upsetting to say the least that last half an hour or so.

"It just was not good enough.

"We were right in the game, but this is happening every week.

"We have just got to keep working hard. It is a mentality thing and we have just got to stick in games for longer periods and the win will come.

"We just can't be doing it for 40-50 minutes.

"This has happened too often now in our games and it can't be happening again.

The positive came in the performance of Australian debutant Brendan Elliot, who impressed in the match.

"He has come through unscathed," said Duffy.

"He looked green before the game with nerves, and I am glad he got through the game.

"He had a decent run out for us there."
