Brian Carney makes shock Man of Steel prediction

Leigh Leopards are living out a fairy tale in 2023 following their promotion.

Red hot in the league, they have an excellent shot of making the final of the Challenge Cup after they defeated Championship York.

For Brian Carney on Sky Sports they have been one of the stories of the season:

“Leigh are marching and they have claimed seven consecutive wins. We are having a great year in Super League in 2023 and this story with Derek Beaumont, Chris Chester, Lachlan Lam, Edwin Ipape and others.

“What a tale.”

Paul Sculthorpe has also been impressed especially by halfback Lachlan Lam:

“They’re thriving aren’t they? I was talking to Derek Beaumont on Friday, they are enjoying the ride.

“What about that man on the inside, Lachlan Lam. How many tries has he created? He has been outstanding.”

This prompted Carney to brand the former NRL halfback as “a strong contender for the Man of Steel.”

To claim the award he will have to push passed the likes of Bevan French and George Williams.

Recently there have been reports of NRL interest in the halfback namely from the Canberra Raiders as a replacement for Jack Wighton who is headed to South Sydney Rabbitohs.
