Leigh's coach, Darren Abram, praised his players for refusing to give up hope after they secured their first Super League win last night. The newly promoted Centurions had lost their first seven games and some pundits suggested they would not win a game. But Abram's side proved a point with a superb fightback to overcome the London Broncos 24-22 at the Coliseum.

The newly promoted Centurions had lost their first seven games and some pundits suggested they would not win a game. But Abram's side proved a point with a superb fightback to overcome the London Broncos 24-22 at the Coliseum.

Leigh had trailed 16-2, but Rob Jackson's try eight minutes from time allowed Neil Turley to complete the comeback with a nerveless touchline conversion. Abram said: "The lads never gave up. All the hard work we have put in has paid dividends. I am proud of every one of them."

A Brett Dallas try six minutes from time helped Wigan - missing seven first-team regulars through injury - to win 21-15 at Hull. In last night's other game, Huddersfield recorded a 26-12 home victory over Salford.
