Former Hull star finds new Super League club

Leigh Centurions have confirmed that Jack Logan has joined the club with immediate effect on a contract until the end of the current season.

The 25-year-old former Hull FC outside back has scored 16 tries in 39 Super League games and has recently impressed during a half season stint in the Betfred Championship with Batley Bulldogs, with short spells at both Doncaster and Toronto featuring on his CV.

Logan was happy about signing at Leigh.

“Everyone I’ve spoken to who’s been at Leigh can’t speak too highly of the place,” Logan said.

“I’m buzzing about the move. Joe Cator, Cam Scott, Tommo (Jordan Thompson) and Ryan Brierley are all mates of mine and they all told me what a passionate town Leigh is for Rugby League and about the great facilities at the Sports Village.

“I’m passionate about what I do and want to play well and enjoy my rugby. This move gives me that opportunity and I intend to make the most of it.

“Looking at the club from a distance you can see what a great club Leigh is. Everyone knows about the drive and ambition of Derek Beaumont and that always comes across when Leigh gets talked about.”

“When Covid came along last year I’d signed part-time for Doncaster and then the clubs outside Super League didn’t play for the rest of the year,” he says. “A friend of mine from Hull, Kieran Buchanan signed for Batley this year and loved the place. So I contacted Craig Lingard, the coach, about joining them.

“Craig invited me down and I signed soon afterwards. I really enjoyed my time there playing under him. They are a class club Batley and their chairman, Kevin Nicholas is a real character with an incredible passion for the club.

“Hull came in to take me back on loan and I had a Super League clause in my contract. But Batley straight away didn’t stand in my way and wished me well. That showed the character of the people there and I owe them a lot.

“I played one game back at Hull but then the Covid virus hit, and games got postponed and I didn’t get another opportunity. So, when Leigh came in for me it was perfect for me.”
