Head Coach, Jonty Gorley, said: "It didn't go very well but it can be expected when you play against teams like Leigh. It happened the week before when we played against Featherstone, but I still think we put on a better performance then. 

"Leigh blew us away in the first half and we knocked on in the very first set of the game. We ended up not seeing the ball for eight sets at which point they were 16-0 up ten minutes, it was relentless. They had the ball for 25 sets in the first half and we had it for nine. 

"At half time we began to reassess as it was coming down to points, it's about fixing things and doing things right for the rest of the season. 

"I think that we did do a bit better going into the second half, but this was a mix of us playing better and them easing off as they had the job done by the end of the first half. 

"Leigh are a really good side and they're better than they were when we were playing them in the first game of the year. 

Jonty went onto talk about his feelings on the Summer Bash this weekend which will be played at Headingley Stadium in Leeds.

He said: "I'm looking forward to it, the match will be an occasion but I don't think we should get caught up in it. 

"It's a game where we'll have to be looking to put a performance in and get the two points.

"We've got a job to do and if we're switched on we can do that but if not Workington could easily turn us over."
