Mitch’s on roll for Centurions
MITCH BROWN scored a hat-trick as Leigh avoided a third successive Middle 8s defeat.
But Centurions’ top-flight status still hangs in the balance despite this eight-try success.
Aussie winger Brown’s second try, on the stroke of half-time, finally broke Halifax’s resistance.
The Championship side only trailed 14-6 until the back picked up a loose ball to race 60 metres.
Fellow winger James Clare crossed for a double while Ben Reynolds also touched down but landed only two of his six conversion attempts before handing over to Josh Drinkwater.
