Big spenders, a star-studded squad and newly crowned 1895 cup winners Leigh Centurions embark on Craven Park this afternoon kick off 3pm.

While Barrow had a weekend off, the Centurions were battling it out with fellow promotion hopefuls Featherstone at the Tottenham Stadium in the 1895 cup which was a triumphant one at 30-16.

While it is a quick turnaround for the Centurions who will have a big following at the game, they will take it in their stride being a full-time club.

Papua New Guinean Coach Adrian Lamb may be tempted to rest a few highly rated players which included fellow PNG, players Edwin Ipape and Nene Macdonald along with Australian Test winger Blake Ferguson and fellow Aussie Ben Reynolds.

However, Lamb will be on his guard and not underestimate Barrow who themselves are resting Carl Forster, Josh Wood Danny Morrow and skipper Jarrad Stack who are all carrying slight knocks with Sunday’s home fixture with Widnes in mind.

Coach Paul Crarey said: “Leigh have a massive quality side with several experienced ex Super League players on board.

“But it will be a good test for some of our younger players who have the chance to shine against a Leigh side that is stronger than the one relegated from Super-League last season.

“I know it is a big task ahead but I'm sure our lads will give a good account of themselves.

“I want them to show our fantastic supporters how they can compete against a top side”

Crarey gives a first run out of the season to Connor Terrill who will pack down with fellow Millomites Charlie Emslie, Nathan Mossop, and Brad Crellin.

With French wizard Hakim Miloudi not clear of suspension until the away game at Workington on Sunday week, Shane Toal will continue his shift at centre alongside Garry Wheeler while covering for Josh Wood will be local Ulverston boy Connor Saunders.

Jake Carter has work commitments so Ryan Johnston will partner Jarrad Sammut at half back.

The referee for the game was MR Ben Thaler.
