Mitch’s on roll for Cen­tu­ri­ons

Daily Mirror - - SPORT -

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.
