James McDonnell was amongst the scorers for Leigh, as Adrian Lam’s side started the month with a narrow 30-28 win away to Batley Bulldogs.

He was once again named on the bench in the Centurions’ second game of the Jubilee Bank Holiday, as they beat Halifax 36-0 at home.

The 22-year-old also featured in Leigh’s most recent game as well, as they beat Sheffield Eagles 58-4.

That result moves the club three points clear at the top of the Championship table, with their closest rivals Featherstone Rovers being defeated by Batley Bulldogs in their last outing.
