Featherstone Rovers and Leigh Centurions still set to make big signings

Getting into Super League is the aim of any Championship side going into the season.

For Featherstone Rovers and Leigh Centurions, 2022 has been a head to head race in a bid to make the promised land for 2023 with the likes of Mark Kheirallah and Blake Ferguson making big moves to the respective pair.

And, Rovers and Centurions are not finished there, according to Bradford Bulls reporter The Game Caller.

“We know how competitive Mark Campbell and Derek Beaumont are,” The Game Caller said on Show Me The Money Rugby League podcast.

“It’s like an arms race and we know Featherstone still have another big one to come in and Derek is saying there is still another big one coming from the NRL.”

And, according to The Game Caller, Rovers are chasing some top-flight quality in the shape of a Super League forward.

“Mark Campbell is on about bringing in someone from Hull FC,” The Game Caller continued.

Meanwhile, Leigh were able to announce the signing of Edwin Ipape on a three-year deal after the Papua New Guinean hooker has impressed greatly since joining the Centurions at the start of the season.

It remains to be seen who the big names are, but the spending spree of Featherstone and Leigh have ensured that the Championship is a two-horse race as both vie to earn promotion.

Whilst Rovers are unbeaten in the second tier, the Centurions have lost one game – and that was to Featherstone – but they met at the 1895 AB Sundecks Final where Leigh overcame Featherstone with relative ease, 30-16 and then the Centurions once more put Rovers to the sword in the league just a fortnight after.
