Dufty 8 - key involvements in both 2nd half tries and a lot of good metres in contact
Ashton 6 - quiet
King 8 - most effective back
Wrench 6 - was going OK until injury
Thewlis 6 - quiet but stunning involvement in winning play
Williams 6
Hayes 6
Harrison 6 (leggy)
Walker 6
Philbin 6
Nicholson 8 - industrious and great support play for the winner
Fitzgibbon 9 - terrific
Crowther 6 - quiet although suspect his stats were still good

Powell 6
Ratchford 7 (slightly unexpected appearance and made a number of key tackles in the 2nd half)
Vaughan 7 (started to look himself in the last quarter)
Bullock 6



Pretty fair assessment, I’d say.

Thought Philbin was our best prop yesterday,I’d bump him up to a 7.

When did Leigh have a week off :? think your on crossed wires crosswire :D

Great game, you got a bit of luck with that last try but that’s the way it goes - we all get the odd rub at some point, as a Leigh fan more than happy with that performance and play like that and the wins will come

Think Burgess has given you guys that bit of steel and determination, you’ve certainly got the players now hopefully getting the mentallity to go with it


Thank goodness for that.
I was questioning myself whether KR v Leigh did happen last week. :SUBMISSION:

For what it's worth, I think King played his best game yesterday since his return. It's telling that in his previous spell he was always on the receiving end of kicks to the corners but now seems to be more of a 'hard yards' back bringing it in. Credit to him running hard whilst his head resembled a pineapple!

It reminded me of the KR game, a game where we could have lost but did enough/bounce of the ball went our way buy as the adage says the more I practice the luckier I get.

We needed to kill Leighs offloads which we didn't do enough, Thewlis should have slid across for 1st try.

Why was Hayes defending at centre and King doing the kick chase surely it makes sense the otherwise around.

Thought Vaughan quiet on return expected him to ignite the game but didn't.

Williams also quiet but we didn't get much possession in opposition 20.

Hayes kicks 1st half lacked distance but improved much better 2nd half.

Attack quite regimented 1st half, 4 forward carries Dufty on 4th and Hayes kick on 5th. They had us pegged and would quickly get to Dufty on the 4th. 2nd half much better.

Lack of zip about the play both sides of the ball. Understandably so with the tough games we have had but on another day like the Saints game you have Dufty and Williams sniffing for the offload/drop ball (although Dufty did well for his try)

Moore was quite poor at policing the ruck and offsides. Couldn't tell the video ref decisions as the sunshine made the big screen unwatchable. But it was nice to see a working scoreboard.

Fitzgibbon was immense as was Matty Nic.

Very happy with result and team spirit, would like to see that prop signing to keep momentum.

I thought it was a damn good game ,hard fought by both teams. It was obvious from the start that the Wire Old Boys & their new friends had come to mark our card.

How many times have we had heroic DEFEATS in our lifetimes, but no one gives a love.

love Leigh, and love everybody else.

Let's care about us. No one else will


No probs - the forum caters for all sorts! (Me included.....)
I honestly do think Leigh deserved the win, BUT quite rightly there are many games where the better team doesn't win and we have been on the wrong end a fair few times. That's the way sport goes sometimes and you roll with the punches.
Don't get me wrong - I'm pleased we won (or maybe just relieved).
I think many posters on here have got it spot on when they said we looked jaded from the start - and Leigh looked quite the opposite.

I'm just wondering what next week will bring as this win has taken a lot out of them I think.
We really could do with some fresh bodies back - particularly forwards - but Currie and Musgrove are a few weeks away.
