Derek Beaumont defends transfer plans following fan complaint

Leigh Centurions announced the signing of former NRL winger Nene Macdonald this afternoon.

But, despite having over 100 NRL games under his belt as well as being a Papua New Guinea international, one Centurions fan ignored the quality recruit to focus on the lack of forward signing announcements being made by the club.

The likes of Ata Hinagano, Keanan Brand, Jy Hitchcox and Joe Wardle have all signed on the dotted line, making the Leigh side a formidable one heading into the 2022 Championship season.

The Centurions’ owner Derek Beaumont came across a supporter that called on the club to start signing some forwards, with Beaumont explaining that more recruits are on their way to Leigh Sports Village for 2022.

Beaumont said: “I am pretty sure chezzy (Chris Chester – head of rugby) knows what positions are needed and has it in hand. Well in fact I know he does and has  patience needed we will be a top quality squad when we have finished and well placed to compete to achieve our goals.”

For Leigh, it’s a case of rebuilding after enduring a tough season in Super League, with just two wins all year condemning the club to relegation.

Now, though, they are one of the favourites for promotion and reach the top flight at the first time of asking.
