Kyle Amor gives his Leigh Leopards relegation verdict as he delivers warning to Derek Beaumont

Leigh Leopards have surprised some with the big signings they have made for 2023.

However, as per usual, the newly promoted side are in the conversations about relegation.

However, they are not the favourites after drafting in some real star power in 2023.

The bookies have Wakefield Trinity 2/1 to go down but the Leopards are the second favourites for relegation and are 11th favourites to win the Grand Final.

However, star signing Zak Hardaker has told Sky Sports that he is not interested in talk about relegation:

“The talk of a new club getting promoted is ‘are they going to get relegated again’ and that’s something that’s definitely not on our minds.

“The talk is always that the club that comes up is probably favourites with the bookies to go straight back down, I’m not sure on the odds this year, but the players that have been recruited here are top level and elite players. We’ve all got one goal and that’s to achieve something this year, it’s not to finish 10th, 11th or 12th.”

Now former Super League Champion and former St Helens and Warrington Wolves prop Kyle Amor has said he thinks the Leopards won’t be in trouble but did have a warning for them.

“I don’t think Leigh are going to be in trouble, I really don’t. A lot of people have been saying it but I really don’t,” Amor said on The Last Tackle Podcast.

“I think a few clubs should be twitching before Leigh. I think they have enough in there to scalp other teams and win those games in and around them.

“The signings they’ve brought in, you always feel with Leigh, the players they’ve brought in the biggest job Adrian Lam and Derek Beaumont has is keeping a lid on the players.

“You always feel that if things go really well, you feel that those players could get a bit excited. I think the biggest thing they can do is look after what they have got in house.

“I think they’ll have a good year.”
