Preview: Leigh Centurions v Swinton Lions

Leigh Centurions had a convincing 68-14 home win over Workington Town in the Challenge Cup last weekend, setting up a fifth round tie away at French side Toulouse Olympique.

Coach Neil Jukes admitted that the Easter period is tough, however, saying: “If you do it right there is four points in four days,” he said. “That’s how we’ll look at it. I’m not too concerned about saving some for this, and saving some for that.

“I said to the guys that a lot of Super League teams play Sunday and then play Thursday, so it’s only the same turnaround.

“We’ll go out to win the game against Swinton on Thursday, monitor where we are at with our injuries, who is good and who is not, and the team might pick itself on Monday. There might be some tough choices to be made but I’m not taking my eye off any of these games.”

Swinton Lions are still searching for that elusive first win of the season after losing 32-28 in the Challenge Cup at Sheffield. Coach John Duffy said: “We just fell short again. I thought we were by far the best team on the day. The lads responded well after the performance at Featherstone and I was really pleased with that but we’ve got to start taking these wins once we’re in front.

“It will be another tough one at Leigh, we’ve just got to go there and enjoy ourselves. It’s a good chance for the younger lads to put themselves in the shop window in front of these big clubs and all these ex-NRL and international players.”

Wing Greg Scott is a doubt with a knee problem.
