Wakefield Trinity Wildcats defeat
Leigh Centurions 38-26

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats coach Shane McNally was grateful to beat Leigh Centurions 38-26 but was far from happy with the way the visitors were allowed to keep the match alive for so long.

The west Yorkshire side led 24-14 at the interval and Centurions remained in contention until debutant Darren Fleary was sin-binned in the 58th minute.

With Fleary off the field Ben Jeffries went over for his second try and Julian O?Neill crossed soon after.

Sid Domic also claimed two for the Wildcats with Sam Obst and Jason Demetriou also scoring, while Leigh?s tries came from Steve Maden, Neil Turley, Fleary and Mick Govin.

"We got the two points but I wasn't happy with our defence. I thought it was poor - a bit of a hangover from last week,? said McNally.

"We did a lot of hard work on it during the week and we're going to have to do some more. "The technique of our tackling isn't good enough. Three wins from four means we're travelling okay this time."

Despite a fourth successive defeat, leaving Leigh rooted to the bottom of the table, coach Darren Abram remained positive.

"There are good points to take out of the game,? he said.

"Our fitness levels were far greater than Wakefield's. We could have done with another try and they were banking on the hooter going."
