Back to square one unfortunately for the Leigh Centurions as their second stint in Super League lasted no longer their previous one.
Though they bettered last time by attaining more points but in the Qualifiers, that proved academic as they swapped divisions with Hull Kingston Rovers once again.
An unfortunate outcome for a club who spent several seasons building to become a Super League club but that emblem was soon removed from their badge.
They’ll return as red hot favourites to challenge for promotion once again but can they return instantly this time?
Until then, check out their 2017 campaign went on and, perhaps, what could have been done better.
Best Performance: Leigh Centurions 50-34 Wigan Warriors
Controversial perhaps but their stand out performance had to be their emphatic 50-34 home win over arch-rivals Wigan Warriors
Scoring 50 points against anyone in Super League is a remarkable achievement in itself but against your “bigger brothers” is very memorable!
Youngster Liam Hood starred in the win, scoring two tries but the Centurions did also perform as a team in dismantling their arch-rivals.
Former Wiganers Ryan Hampshire and Danny Tickle also notched tries, with Lachlan Burr, Mitch Brown, Cory Paterson and Matty Dawson also touching down.
Superb stuff from the Centurions, who displayed they are capable of exciting rugby, even at the top level.
Though in the end their efforts ultimately proved futile, this match will live long in the memory for any Leigh supporter and one that could inspire a possible return to Super League in the years to come.
