Player of the Week
Ryan Brierley stared in a dramatic draw for the Centurions over Championship rivals Bradford. Despite Leigh being 32-6 up and Bradford fighting back to claim a draw, the young half-back was influential for the visitors scoring two tries. Two more English halves make our nominations in Luke Gale and Kevin Brown; both had top performances for Castleford and Widens respectively to keep the tow clubs unbeaten runs going in 2016. New Aussie signing Dave Taylor is our final contender for our Player of the Week. The Catalans prop played a crucial role in their first home win of the season against the Champions Leeds.
Team of the Week
The Batley Bulldogs are nominated for their 3rd time in 4 weeks after another big win over Halifax in the Championship. John Kear’s side have already beaten Leigh and Sheffield and only lost narrowly to Featherstone last week. Claiming 6 points against 4 of last season’s top 5 is impressive to say the least. Widnes and Castleford reamin unbeaten in Super League 2016; the Tigers claimed 2 points in a thrilling affair at the KC against Hull FC in a match that finished 23-31, and Widnes won their first game in Huddersfield in 20 years beating the Giants 36-18 to finish the weekend at the top of the table. Meanwhile back in the Championship, Bradford came back from 32-6 down to earn a draw with Leigh scoring 5 tries in the final 15 minutes.
