DANNY Addy is happy for Leigh to carry the underdogs tag into Sunday’s Coral Challenge Cup fifth round tie at Super League strugglers, Hull KR.

Addy played against the Centurions in last season’s competition when Rovers recovered from a 10-0 deficit to win 14-10.

Another potential upset is on the cards with John Duffy’s unbeaten side riding high in the Championship including last Sunday’s, 12-man, backs-to-the-wall, 34-20 home win over Halifax.

Addy’s former paymasters have won only one of their six top-flight games though they produced an encouraging performance before losing 30-16 at Wigan last Sunday.

“I am looking forward to going back but it will be just like any other game,” insists Leigh skipper Addy who spent three seasons at Craven Park.

“I am sure we will all be up for it after a big week’s training and go there to try and cause a little upset.

“There is no pressure on us as they are the Super League team. I look forward to going back as underdogs.

“Leigh probably should have won that game last year. It was a tough and physical game and being on this side of it now we will try to do that again.

“As a team it will give us an honest test of how far we are off and how well we are travelling.”

Winger Cameron Scott scored his first professional hat-trick in a victory over Halifax that also saw Jarrod Sammut sent-off for a dangerous tackle and Adam Higson sin binned for another first half flashpoint.

“It was not the best performance but it is the result that counted,” added Addy of Leigh’s fourth successive Championship triumph.

“Everyone would have written us off at half-time being down by two. So, to grind out a result like that is important.”

Coach Duffy is delighted by the form of his 20-year-old Hull loan star Scott.

“Cam has been sensational since he arrived,” he said. “He is a big athletic player and gets better every game.”

On the trip to Humberside Duffy said: “It gives us chance to see where we are at.

“They are playing in Super League week in, week out. So, we will see if our lads can step up and play at that pace.”

Ryan Shaw, now at Centurions, and Craig Hall, who played for Leigh in 2018 but who is with Featherstone, grabbed late tries.

Rovers have struggled with injuries this year but coach Tony Smith hopes Adam Quinlan, Weller Hauraki and Dean Hadley will be available to face Duffy’s men.
