“Hull were good, not brilliant” admits Kurt Haggerty. The Leigh Centurions caretaker coach saw his side sustain their biggest defeat of the season as they fell to a 64-22 drubbing by Hull FC at the Leigh Sports Village.
However, instead of merely giving Hull credit, Haggerty took aim at his side and insists they must be better.
He said, “I thought Hull were good. I did not think they were brilliant. I thought at times we still looked threatening but we were just nowhere near consistent enough in defence.
“We started the game very poorly. We never really recovered from that. We were just not on it today.
“We are going to have to learn lessons, in the good and the bad so we just have to keep moving forward.
“The most frustrating thing today was our defence. I thought we let their big men run right over us too much today.
“They are a good team and have some very good personnel but we just did not cope very well today.”
The result not only leaves Leigh rock bottom without a win but heading well and truly towards the unwanted history of becoming the first Super League side to lose each and every game in a season.
However, Haggerty did take some positives out of the match. He said, “I thought our offence was pretty good at times.
“Some of our scrambling around at the back end as well. There was not a lot of good things but still some nonetheless.
“We will keep moving forward and address the issues. We will probably bring in another one or two for the Warrington game next week but I am not 100% sure on that at the moment.”
