Adrian Morley’s honest opinion of Derek Beaumont and Leigh rebrand

Derek Beaumont has radically changed Leigh.

Once the Centurions, now they are the Leigh Leopards with a striking kit and also a real understanding of how to create a buzz around the club as we saw last week with Scouting For Girls and the Fuel Girls performances last week.

The Leopards also have a star studded squad with the likes of Zak Hardaker and Ricky Leutele providing some real star power in their squad.

They are the second favourites for relegation after Wakefield Trinity but many are expecting the Leopards to surprise a few and that is the view of legendary player Adrian Morley.

This came as he gave his honest view of what Beaumont has done with the club as well as how they will compete in 2023 on the Last Tackle Podcast.

He said: “I thought it was a fantastic game on Friday as well, Leigh weren’t there to make the numbers up as Derek says. Credit to Derek Beaumont as well, I thought it was a fantastic show.

“Rugby league is all about razzmatazz on the pitch and he got it right off the pitch as well. It was a great game and he’s assembled a great squad.

“It’ll take a few games for him to get the combinations but I think they’re going to trouble a few teams as well.”
