Leigh Centurions vs Batley Bulldogs: 21-man squads, kick-off time and TV details

Super League awaits. Leigh Centurions and Batley Bulldogs are both 80 minutes away from the top tier as they meet in the Championship Grand Final, the Million Pound Game.

Leigh host the game having finished top only losing one league fixture all season and not losing since they only just came up short against Hull KR in the Challenge Cup. Since then, they’ve won the 1895 Cup, overtaken Featherstone at the top of the Championship, won the League Leaders’ Shield and eased their way to the Grand Final where they are overwhelming favourites.

They’re taking on the ultimate underdogs, the Bulldogs. One of the league’s lowest spenders, Batley defied the odds to make it to the semi-finals for a second year in a row, but now are 80 minutes away from Super League after shocking Featherstone last week. Can they go all the way?
