Australian scrum-half Ben Black scored his 100th try in the British game to help Batley to a thrilling 24-18 Kingstone Press win over Leigh.

An early try from full-back Miles Greenwood put the Bulldogs in front but the in-form Centurions scored through Matt Gardner and Ryan Brierley to lead 12-6 at half-time.

Black then brought up his century and Jonny Campbell touched down to restore the Bulldogs\' lead but Leigh drew level with Jonathan Pownall\'s 77th-minute try and it needed a last-minute score from hooker Paul Mennel to clinch it for John Kear\'s men.
