Eagles coach Mark Aston says his players are hungry to avenge the embarrassing home defeat to Leigh Centurions six weeks ago when they travel to the Leigh Sports Village tomorrow.
The Centurions have won all 17 of their Championship encounters and sit 10 points clear at the table top. Aston said: “We’re going to have to be good; they have been outstanding this year. They smacked our backsides a few weeks ago and that hurt. If we have anything about us as a group of we will stand up.”
The coachh added: “We are going to a beautiful facility - it’s a big wide pitch and hopefully it will be a sunny day so we can play.
“We have a point to prove; we’re not willing to give up our mantle as back-to-back champions easily.
“As far as I am concerned there were three players that played well last week, so there will be changes. Scott Turner is back from injury and Peter Aspinall and James Davey could play a part too.
“We’re not in a luxurious position to make massive changes - we’re playing against a very strong Leigh team and I don’t want to kill my kids.”
