Leigh Centurions reportedly set for one more big-name signing

Leigh Centurions have now demolished their nearest rivals in the Championship, Featherstone Rovers, twice in a number of weeks.

After lifting the 1895 Cup at Tottenham, Leigh put Rovers to the sword in a 32-12 emphatic win on Monday night at the Leigh Sports Village.

Tries from superb new recruits Blake Ferguson and Edwin Ipape proved that Adrian Lam’s and head of rugby Chris Chester’s recruitment policy has been spot on despite reservations earlier on in the season.

However, Premier Sports host Ross Fiddes – who was standing in for usual host Emma Jones – revealed that Leigh are looking for new blood

“They are still thinking of signings to come,” Fiddes said.

That echoed Bradford Bulls reporter, The Game Caller, who stated on last night’s The Full Eighty Minutes podcast that: “There’s still another one to come from the NRL.”

For Premier Sports pundit, Andrew Henderson, he questioned when would the Centurions be preparing for Super League with the whole host of their overseas recruits.

“When do they start preparing for Super League? It’s so difficult for a club to go to that game in October and then prepare for Super League,” Henderson said.

“But there’s an understanding of 14 or 15 overseas players and you’re only allowed seven in Super League. how do you find space for them as the will need to get rid over half of them?”

The Centurions were too big and too strong in the end for their West Yorkshire opponents.
