Derek Beaumont reveals dream Grand Final

Derek Beaumont

Derek Beaumont in the past has spoken about his desire to lead Leigh Leopards to a Challenge Cup Final or Grand Final.

But speaking ahead of Thursday’s derby with Wigan Warriors on the club’s YouTube channel, Beaumont has suggested that a Wigan-Leigh final is his dream final.

He said: “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.”

This comes as Beaumont spoke about the value of having clubs close together which is interesting given IMG’s decision to including catchment in their grading criteria:

“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.

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