After Jacques O’Neill’s Love Island journey, another rugby league player has taken to the Love Island villa in the shape of Keanan Brand.
The former Warrington Wolves outside back who joined Leigh in the 2021 season on loan before making the move permanently in the 2022 season and helping the club return to Super League.
However, he has not had the chance to play in Super League since their promotion as the outside back heads to the Love Island villa as O’Neill did last year.
Brand is the latest Love Island bombshell to drop in and ruffle some feathers and you will see him tonight.
What it means for the Leigh squad remains to be seen.

Since leaving the Love Island villa Keanan’s predecessor O’Neill has done a lot to promote mental health and the like and has also helped promote Super League appearing on the likes of Sky Sports as a pundit.
But the big question has always been, will he return to rugby league?
On Sky Sports he suggested that a return could be close:
“I’m hoping soon, I’m hoping sooner than I thought, I’ve got to be honest. I miss it. When you love something when you’re a kid, you miss it. I want to be back.”
So, O’Neill could be set to return to rugby league sooner rather than later.
If he did, the Tigers would have first dibs on him.
