Channel 4 presenter says Super League shirt is “what a kid wants to buy”

A lot has been made of the Leigh Leopards.

The Leopards rebranded before the start of the season after being known as the Leigh Centurions.

They also made a whole host of huge signings which has led the club to success so far this season on the field as the club looks to break boundaries off the field.

As part of their rebrand they have a new look kit with a leopard on the front of it.

It was redesigned to have more colour after the initial design was released.

It has certainly divided opinion but Channel 4 presenter Helen Skelton has said the kit is exactly what a kid wants to buy.

“It might sound flippant but a Leigh Leopards shirt is what kids want to buy. They want to be a leopard.”

Last week, during the NRL’s Magic Weekend, legendary commentator Andrew Voss, who came over to the UK for the World Cup and visited pretty much every stadium in British rugby league, said he had seen a Leigh Leopards jersey to underline the celebration of rugby league he was enjoying but also described it as “one of the worst kits in rugby league history.”

“This is a wonderful festival of rugby league. You see every jersey you can imagine,” Vossy said.

“In fact there was one bloke I saw with a Leigh Leopards jersey on, one of the worst in rugby league history.

“There’s so many clubs represented.”

Leigh fans shouldn’t be dismayed by these comments, it is a sign of success that they are being represented and talked about across the other side of the planet which is exactly the aim of owner Derek Beaumont.
