Derek Beaumont makes cheeky Warrington comment as he compares Wigan rivalry to Hull derby

Leigh Leopards are hosting Wigan Warriors in a huge derby on Thursday night and ahead of the game Leigh owner Derek Beaumont has spoken about the size of the rivalry.

He went on to compare it with the Hull derby and he also spoke about Warrington Wolves taking a cheeky jab at the league leading Wolves:

“I 100% think so, you see it at Hull don’t you with what they’ve got. There’s quite a cluster of clubs around here, obviously Warrington are equally as close and they’re going well,” Beaumont said on the club’s YouTube channel.

“We all know it’s their year this year don’t we?”

He went on to explain that he would love to see a Leigh and Wigan final:

“As much as we like to see Wigan be successful, how good would it be if one day we’ve got a Challenge Cup Final that was Wigan vs Leigh, or a Grand Final, a semi-final in the playoffs?

“I just think it’d be absolutely massive, last year we won the 1895 Cup and then watched Wigan win the Challenge Cup. I really enjoyed that day, how good would it be to hand that 1895 Cup over this year to someone and then take part in the final?

“That’s what dreams are made of but hopefully one of us, if not both, will get there.”
