Duffy couldn’t have expected much more from the classy Centurions who also had Ben Reynolds sin binned after a first half melee.

Eagles though rarely showed much stomach for a fight virtually grounded by Leigh’s flying start that saw Higson touch down after four, seven and 19 minutes.

Josh Woods and Iain Thornley piled up the points before Reynolds saw yellow from referee Mike Mannifield for a punch.

A 26-0 half-time lead soon multiplied as Centurions forwards rumbled onto the attack.

Nick Glohe, Lewis Bienek-on debut-Matty Wildie and Alex Gerrard took the score out to 46-0 before Ben Hellewell brought up the half century just after the hour from Reynolds’ clever kick.

Leigh, who return to the LSV to face York City Knights on Sunday, February 16, couldn’t add further points until the last second when Liam Hood dived over from dummy half.

This Is Lancashire:

Eagles, still winless after an opening season defeat to Halifax, recorded consolations through Josh Guzdek and Lewis Taylor.

But the last word went to Gregg McNally’s whose conversion of Hood’s try, brought up 1000 career points.
