LEIGH Centurions face their biggest test on Sunday with a trip to Halifax.

After going unbeaten in nine games this season, Ian Millward’s men will go into the game at The Shay as favourites.

But the head coach is taking nothing for granted.

“We are doing fine at the moment and just need to keep on top of things,” he said.

“There’s a long way to go in the season but we’ve started well and given ourselves confidence.

“It’s been good so far, good on the eye too.”

Despite Halifax losing each of their first three league games, Millward is not looking too deeply into that and pointed to their success last year and in France last weekend.

“Halifax were premiers,” he said.

“They won the competition last year and their credentials are without doubt. “Every week is a big test and each of our first eight games are really tough.

“Our big thing is to challenge ourselves for the first nine games and see where we are at.

“But now looking at how teams have started, I think we’re going to get another seven tough games.”

Leigh were boosted last week by the inclusion of Lee Mitchell who has returned on dual contract terms from Warrington.
