Worrying news for Leigh Leopards

The play off picture is now clearer with Leeds Rhinos ruled out, Hull KR have been confirmed and Warrington Wolves and Salford Red Devils are left to battle for sixth spot.

But there are further questions to answer such as Wigan Warriors, St Helens and Catalans Dragons battle for top spot.

As Wigan battle for the League Leaders’ Shield, they take on rivals Leigh Leopards.

The Leopards could also lose their home play off game against Hull KR if the Robins beat relegated Wakefield Trinity this week.

They have the momentum after the win over Salford Red Devils.

This felt like a play off game itself as Hull KR and Salford Red Devils met in front of a sell out crowd as Hull KR had the chance to secure their play off spot whilst Salford knew that a defeat would leave them in a perilous position going into next week and the battle with Warrington Wolves for a play off spot.

Thus, there was a huge amount of pressure on both teams which led to a bombed try as Hull KR carved through the Red Devils with Shaun Kenny-Dowall teeing up Brad Schneider up for a certain try but he dropped the ball.

After a number of errors in their own half, the Robins defended well and eventually broke again with Schneider making amends to set up James Batchelor.

KR then had a try disallowed for a SKD knock on after a kick with Matt Parcell hoping to capitalise.

There was a brilliant tackle from Ryan Brierly to deny a breaking Mikey Lewis who showed amazing foot work to carve open the Red Devils.

The Robins went into the second half 6-0 ahead and looked very close to scoring when Matt Parcell darted towards the line but a desperate tackle from Brodie Croft saw the ball dislodged.

They did then take the two after earning a penalty for a high tackle on Mikey Lewis who had his finger prints all over the game and at 8-0 he had a chance to seal the win taking an offload from Kane Linnett and diving for the corner but was again denied by Ryan Brierley.

But the Robins would secure their play off spot with a lovely move putting Ryan Hall in at the corner.
