Leigh seek repeat performance in the Cup
Paul Rowley is confident that lightning can strike for a second time in next weekâ€™s Carnegie Challenge Cup fifth round tie between Leigh Centurions and Halifax at Leigh Sports Village on Sunday April 29.
Having masterminded an impressive 32-18 victory over their Co-operative Championship rivals at Halifax last week, Leighâ€™s coach know his players will not lack self belief as they look to reach the last eight of Rugby Leagueâ€™s oldest and most prestigious knockout competition.
â€śWe enjoyed the win and itâ€™s allowed us to go into the Cup weekend on a positive note and gives us the perfect platform to build for another big game,â€ť said Rowley.
â€śWeâ€™ve got the upmost respect for Halifax and we know theyâ€™ll come at us hard and determined to make up for the result so itâ€™s going to be another very tough game but weâ€™ve got a very healthy environment at the club and the lads are all confident.
â€śBoth sides have been presented with a great opportunity because getting through to a Challenge Cup quarter-final is a big achievement for any club. It would be great for us to get there and it would give us something to be very proud of so weâ€™re desperate to get our name in the bag for the next stage.
â€śWeâ€™ve got a passionate set of lads and there are a lot of fearless young players here who would relish the chance to take on some of the gameâ€™s biggest teams so weâ€™re going into the game with no fear and very keen to progress.â€ť
