LEIGH Centurions will play St Helens on Friday, 21 January 2022 (kick off 8pm) at the Totally Wicked Stadium in England prop Alex Walmsley's testimonial game.

The powerhouse prop has been awarded a testimonial year in 2022 after making over 224 appearances in the red vee since signing for the club in 2012.

Last season Leigh pipped Saints in Tommy Makinson's testimonial game.

Walmsley said: “I am delighted to now announce my Testimonial fixture against Leigh Centurions. I can’t wait and hopefully all our fans can get down and support the team and I.

“This will be the first time the fans will catch a glimpse of our new signings in action in 2022 and after Leigh’s performance against us in pre-season last year, we know it will be a tough game and one which will put us in a good position for the start of the season.”

Leigh's Championship campaign will kick off the following weekend.
