Leigh Centurions swoop for former Super League winger

Leigh Centurions have taken former Super League winger Kieran Dixon on trial, the club has confirmed to Serious About Rugby League.

The club has also confirmed that no firm decision has been made on his future with the winger having only just departed from the York City Knights.

London-born Dixon made his Super League debut for the London Broncos against St Helens in 2012, earning international recognition with England Knights.

Dixon went on to score 39 tries in 55 appearances for the capital club before moving to Hull KR.

The fleet-footed winger then re-joined the Londoners for 2017 and helped Danny Ward’s side win promotion after helping them overcome the Toronto Wolfpack in the Million Pound Game in 2018.

Leigh confirmed that Dixon contacted the club in a bid to earn a longer deal.

The Centurions have rebuilt heavily in a bid to achieve promotion to Super League at the first time of asking following their relegation in 2021.

New head coach Adrian Lam has already signed the likes of Tom Amone, John Asiata and Caleb Aekins with head of rugby Chris Chester having a substantial contribution in his first few months in his new role.

Tony Clubb has also joined Leigh as assistant coach.
