Official Match Report

Leaders Leigh stay perfect

Kingstone Press Championship leaders Leigh scored two tries in the last 10 minutes to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season with a 35-22 win over North Wales Crusaders at the Sports Village.

There were no more than six points between the teams for 70 minutes but Liam Kay and Sean Penkywicz crossed in the closing stages for tries which were converted by Martyn Ridyard, who then denied the visitors a bonus point with a last-minute drop goal.

Adam Higson scored a 16-minute hat-trick for Leigh and Ryan Brierley raced almost the length of the field for his 13th try of the season, while Rob Massam, Adam Lawton, Tommy Johnson and Mark Offerdahl scored tries for the promoted Wrexham outfit.
