Junior Sa’u in tears as Leigh exit all but confirmed

Junior Sa’u looks to be another Leigh player heading out the door after the Centurions’ relegation from the Super League has now occurred.

The powerful centre has been at Leigh since July 2019 following a short spell on loan at Wakefield Trinity, but the 34-year-old was in tears as the final whistle went in Leigh’s 42-24 defeat to Huddersfield yesterday afternoon.

Sa’u turned pro with Newcastle Knights in 2008 for whom he scored two tries on his debut against Canterbury Bulldogs. His performances earned him international recognition and he represented New Zealand nine times and Samoa twice.

After 86 appearances for the Knights, he had a short spell with Melbourne Storm in 2013 before a move to Salford came about just in time for the 2014 campaign.

Sa’u stayed at the AJ Bell Stadium for six years, scoring 60 tries in 142 appearances and becoming a huge favourite with the Red Devils fans – something which he has also achieved at the Leigh Sports Village.
