Match Preview


Rowley wants to take it to Barrow

Greg McNally is set to replace John O'Donnell in Leigh's only change ahead of their Kingstone Press Championship match against Barrow which Centurions coach Paul Rowley is challenging his side to 'dictate'.

Rowley said: "The best word to describe Barrow is 'capable'. It's about them putting it together for a full 80 minutes, and the challenge for us is not to allow that.

"We're at home and we intend to dictate how the game goes, but we're very respectful and aware of the dangers they pose. There are no easy beats in the Kingstone Press Championship."

Tom Spencer is also available for the Centurions, although it is believed Rowley is likely to stick with the same players that won at Dewsbury last week.

Rowley said: "There were a lot of penalties in the game, but that shouldn't take away from how good we were defensively.

"We're very capable and proud of our defensive record, and we want to continue to be more ruthless as the year goes on."

Sean Casey looks likely to feature for the Raiders, despite suffering a knock to his ankle in last week's 30-20 defeat against Whitehaven.
