Derek Beaumont says surprise Super League side should be “championed” for major signing

Derek Beaumont appeared on Sky Sports over the Magic Weekend.

He was one of a number of guests involved in their brilliant coverage and Beaumont spoke about how much he loved the event.

“It’s absolutely brilliant, we have a great crowd in, the beer is flowing and everyone has a rugby shirt on,” he said.

“Leopard print is everywhere! You know me everything is toned down and the rugby is very entertaining.”

He also spoke how his side have defied the odds in 2023:

“Many scoffed but the rugby does the talking at the end of the day. Personally I didn’t think Salford Red Devils and Hull KR would be where they are so I got that wrong.

“What Lammy is doing is brilliant and the way they’re doing it with quality is great.

“It is the manner that we’re winning that is impressive and especially the way we’re defending.”

Over the weekend Leigh beat Wakefield Trinity and Beaumont said they should be credited for bringing in David Fifita:

“They are giving it a go. They are fighting. They should be credited for bringing in big David Fifita.

“They shouldn’t be criticised for what they are doing, they should be championed.”
