A lot has been made about Derek Beaumont and what he has done for Leigh.
He rebranded them as the Leigh Leopards this year and has paid for some huge signings which have enabled them to beat both last year’s Grand Finalists in St Helens and Leeds Rhinos as well as pick up five wins from 10 games putting them firmly in the play-off mix.
Now former Super League star Adrian Morley has had his say on Beaumont and believes he is doing a fantastic job.
“Leigh have been a breath of fresh air in the Super League,” Morley said on The Last Tackle.
“Everyone tipped them to go straight down as clubs generally do in Super League but they’ve cemented their place in mid-table and I think they’ll be too strong for Castleford.
“I mentioned it the other day but Derek Beaumont is doing a fantastic job there at Leigh.
“Not only has he got them into Super League, he invested in the squad to make a very healthy squad but also the game day experience, the razzmatazz at the Leigh Sports Village is the best in the league.
“That includes all the regular Super League teams so fair play to Derek and I think Leigh will get the win on Friday.”
The Leopards take on Castleford Tigers tonight.
