Centurions March to WilderspoolThe Wolves have drawn Leigh Centurions and a home tie for the next round of the Challenge Cup. Leigh, who are riding high at the top of the NFP and who came back from a twelve point deficit to beat Super League opposition in the form of Salford.Speaking at the post-match press conference on hearing the draw Coach Van de Velde was pleased with a home tie, but also had a word of caution about the next opponents."It's another home draw for us and they obviously played well to beat Salford and they've had a real good start to the season.""They're going to be tough opposition for us so we've got to prepare well now and make sure we progress. This won't be an easy game, they came back and beat Salford so we've got to be very conscious of that.""We've a few blokes out so we'll have Toa, Steve McCurrie pushing for spots. Gee is not too far off and Briers and Hunte are ready and may be back for the game. It's a good position to be in, first time I've been able to think about who it is I'm going to pick. The blokes are putting their hands up wanting to play, we didn't have that competition for places last year."The Wolves will play Leigh at Wilderspool on Sunday 25th February, Kick-off 3pm.
