LEIGH Centurions full back Gregg McNally insists he will have no split loyalties when lining up against former club, Bradford Bulls at Odsal on Sunday.

But McNally will always be grateful to the West Yorkshire side for allowing him to quit the club last season for personal reasons just 12 months into his two-year deal.

“Bradford were very helpful and understood my situation and the reasons I wanted to be back home,” said the 28-year-old.

“But for 80 minutes I am just concentrating on Leigh and getting the two points.

“It’s been well documented the rivalry between Leigh and Bradford in the past few years.

“When I went there I got a bit of stick for it from the lads and the coaches. So, it will be a tough game because they have a good squad, the majority of whom are full-time, and everyone knows how good John Kear is as a coach.

“He likes to rally his teams and I know they will be a force to be reckoned with.”

McNally would love two tries with the two points to keep Leigh in the top five of the Betfred Championship and for him to reach 100 in Centurions colours.

Last weekend’s double in a 46-6 win over Rochdale took the Irish international to 150 career touch downs.

“It’s probably something I will look back on later in my career as a big achievement,” he added.

“But for now I am just going to keep my head down and keep working,” said McNally naming his 90 metres solo score against Salford in 2017 as his favourite so far.

“As long as Martyn Ridyard passes I might score a few more before I’m done,” he laughed. “Hopefully they are all in a Leigh shirt.”

Bradford are eighth on their return to the game’s second tier having won three of their seven games,

“We are not too bothered about the league position at the moment, it’s just about ticking off the wins each week,” said McNally.

“Besides, you can’t predict anything in the Championship these days so you have to turn up with the right attitude. We did that against Swinton and Rochdale and got the two points.”

Head coach John Duffy believes Leigh should have picked up a couple more wins.

“But other than I am happy where we are heading and what we are producing in games,” he said.

“I can’t have asked much more in terms of passion and playing for Leigh.”

Jake Emmitt is expected to make his latest debut for the club after re-joining from Toronto Wolfpack.

“Jake got concussed in Toronto’s game at Toulouse but he is chomping at the bit and I can’t wait to see him in a Leigh jersey again.”
