Hull KR

Rugby L


Hello, hello, hello. It's rugby league time again and this time out, we're taking our first dip into the warm waters of the Qualifiers. Some tie we'll have on our hands too. 2nd bottom of the Super League Leigh host Championship leaders Hull KR. Join me in 15 mins for the whole thing.

Both these sides won their first games, Leigh cruising by Featherstone while Rovers struggled against a spirited Halifax, squeaking home 26-22. At this stage it's only the result that matters really, though, and they're both up and running. Rovers will need to be a lot better today though.

The sun is shining on the Leigh Sports Village and we're almost ready to go.

0' Jack Smith is our ref and he blows his whistle - Rovers kick us off!

1' Marsh sends up a huge kick that McNally loses the flight of, but recovers to take on the full.

2' Higham kicks and it just about rolls dead. Elsewhere, Warrington are thumping the Catalans 18 zip.

4' Rovers, who have come dressed in an early 2000s Saints away kit, give away the first penalty.

5' Drinkwater kicks and it goes dead, but there was a very late hit from Scruton on him. The ref looks at the video ref and gives it as a shoulder charge. Leigh will run from 10 out.

6' Higham is over the line but held up...

6' Drinkwater kicks and Heffernan does superbly to take it, but he can't get out. Repeat set coming up.
