LEIGH Centurions stayed three points clear at the top of the Betfred Championship after an 11-try demolition of Dewsbury Rams in a 60-6 win at the Tetley's Stadium.

Ben Reynolds scored two tries and landed three conversions to pass 1,000 career points after Dewsbury took an early 6-0 lead through Reiss Butterworth's converted try.

Krisnan Inu touched down for Leigh and kicked five conversions, while Kai O'Donnell, Caleb Aekins, Sam Stone, James McDonnell, Nene Macdonald, Josh Charnley, Joe Mellor and Edwin Ipape all got on the scoresheet.

Featherstone Rovers stormed back from a 12-10 half-time deficit to win 46-24 at Whitehaven and remain hot on Leigh's heels in second place.

Converted first-half tries from Will Evans and Perry Singleton edged Whitehaven ahead at the break, with Rovers responding through Morgan Smith and Luke Briscoe's unconverted try.

But the visitors cut loose after the restart as Joey Leilua, Brett Ferres, Smith, Josh Hardcastle, Jack Broadbent and Matty Wildie all crossed for converted scores. Craig Hall landed seven conversions in total.

Whitehaven's Dion Aiye touched down twice in the second half and Nikau Williams was successful with all four conversions.
