Rovers Beat The Centurions To Go Fourth





Few would argue that the performance of the weekend in the Betfred Championship was the Bradford Bulls sensational away win at second place Toulouse Olympique XIII on Saturday evening. That said, the game of the round, on paper at least, was Featherstone Rovers game against the Leigh Centurions.

The sides came into the game in fourth and fifth places on the league ladder and Leigh knew coming into the game that a win would lift them into second spot in the league, level on points with third placed York City Knights. Featherstone also had everything to play for as a win would see them go above Leigh into fourth spot on points difference.

Everything suggested a full blooded classic encounter.

Thank heavens that Featherstone defeated Leigh. The last thing that northern hemisphere rugby league needs is to have Leigh seriously challenging for a spot in Super League. Not that I think that Leigh would have a great chance to displace Toronto as the team to be promoted to Super League for 2020. But anything is possible, especially with on field referees adjudicating without the support of a video referee. So the further away from the top of the Championship Leigh is, the better.

The ideal challenge to Toronto would come from Toulouse, because the promotion of either Toronto or Toulouse would bring much needed geographical expansion to Super League. Hopefully Toronto will get promoted at the end of this season, and Toulouse will get promoted at the end of next season. Either Ottawa or New York would make an ideal third expansion team the year after Toulouse goes up.

Thank you Featherstone Rovers for helping to keep Leigh Centurions in check.
Toulouse for Championship in 2017, Super League in 2021!

Avignon for Championship in 2021, Super League in 2022!

Oi you! :wink:

I support Leigh and would be the first to admit they aren't anywhere near good enough to get into SL. Toronto should walk into SL this year, unless they 'bottle' the play-offs - again!

However, Toulouse seem about as far from good enough for SL, as Leigh. They are going to have to improve on their recent form, or they could slip to 5th, or even 6th, at this rate.

As for today, congratulations to Featherstone. They were the better team and fully deserved their victory. :CLAP: :CLAP:

What have Leigh Centurions ever done to you to cause such an extremely tainted view of them?

I bet this rivalry goes all the way back to the battle of Bents Garden Centre.
