Leigh boss calls for extreme measures to save rugby league

Rugby league is at a crossroads at present.

Where the sport heads in the next year or two could determine if rugby league continues to be a professional sport further down the line.

And, for Leigh head coach Kurt Haggerty – who was won just twice with the Centurions since taking over midway through the year – drastic measures are needed for the sport.

“We all have an opinion,” said Haggerty.

“Whatever we come up with there has to be a three-to-five-year plan so teams can build and sustain while they are building.

“I don’t want the game to fall by the wayside and keep constantly changing things.

“Let’s come up with a plan, stick with it so we can all adapt and move forward with it.”

Haggerty has also called for more stability for clubs that are able to reach the upper echelons of the sport.

“Let a club build appropriately to be successful, not just dip in and out, with the same people and the same players circulating – stick with something and stop changing it.

“The time is now to do it because there is so much uncertainty around the game – it is time for drastic change.

“Believe it, back it and give it the best chance of being successful.”
