Leigh have had high scores against them so far this season, so what is going on ? This outlines, obviously, there is issues with the defence. For me initial contact is very poor and isn't dominant enough. Although I do rate Jordan Thompson very highly & has been a quality signing so far solid in defence and going forward. If the rest of the forwards followed his desire Leigh would be better. Also we have seen Leigh fade within the second half, that clearly outlines conditioning issues. You can see some of the players blowing during the warm up, which for me is done half heartedly. Train like you play ... play like you train !!

I agree regarding the contact and about Thompson too.

Line speed isn't great either.

I think Patrick will come good too in the forwards

Leigh Centurions 12 v 34 Toronto Wolfpack

Sun 11th Feb

Leigh Centurions 34 v 6 Batley Bulldogs

Sun 18th Feb

Barrow Raiders 24 v 20 Leigh Centurions

Sun 25th Feb

Leigh Centurions 26 v 32 Toulouse Olympique

Sun 4th Mar

Leigh Centurions 30 v 38 Featherstone Rovers


For 122 pts Against 134 pts

Nothing that cant be turned around. The issue is four home games gone, with only one result. Defense isn't lacking beacuse of conditioning or fitness. Its lacking due to organisational skills. With the inclusion of Higham and also Lilley I'm expecting those skills to be addressed this week. Lets see what happens Sunday.

I do think Bodene Thompson has been good too, he is a tackling machine and hits hard also!
Not sure our pack is has big as last year, certainly they are not as aggressive!

Interestingly, we are one of only two teams (Sheffield is the other) not to have anyone 'referred' to the Disciplinary, after five rounds of the Championship!
