Leigh Centurions staged a remarkable comeback

The Raiders were on course for a shock victory thanks to early tries from Liam Finch, Brad Brennan, Liam Campbell and Scott Kaighan, three of them converted by Kurt Haggerty who also kicked a penalty before half-time.

Leigh pulled two tries back through Gregg McNally and Sam Hopkins before the break and ran in others in the second half through Hopkins, Bob Beswick, Andy Thornley and Martyn Ridyard, who took his goal tally to seven from as many attempts.

Winger Mike Backhouse grabbed a last-minute try for the visitors and Haggerty kicked his fifth goal to earn his side a losing bonus point.
