Leigh boss Neil Jukes insists he is still really proud of his men despite falling to defeat at the hands of Leeds Rhinos on Thursday.
Leigh enjoyed an incredible campaign throughout 2016 and earned promotion to the super League earlier this month following success in the Super 8s Qualifiers.
The Centurions were beaten 37-12 by Leeds as they lost their perfect record in the Qualifiers on Thursday at Headingley.
Despite coming off second best Jukes was quick to praise his squad for their commitment over the course of a memorable season.
Jukes said: Despite losing we can be really proud. They will enjoy the break and we will get ready for a big year next year.
"It has been phenomenal what the players and the staff have achieved and it’s a really good model for us to build on certainly for next year."
