Matt Peet reveals Wigan Warriors’ stance on signing Kruise Leeming

Last night it was reported that a Super League star was headed for the exit door.

Rugby League Live have reported that Leeds Rhinos are willing to allow former captain and Challenge Cup winner Kruise Leeming to leave the club.

Leeming has worn the number nine shirt at Leeds since 2020 and has made 65 appearances for the Rhinos during a time in which he forced his way into the England setup having been named in the 2021 Super League Dream Team.

An injury last year saw him miss out on the World Cup with Jarrod O’Connor replacing him as the club’s starting nine which was a trend that went all the way to the Grand Final and has been assumed again recently.

This is perhaps why Leeming is interested in an exit to ensure more game time.

Leeming has again been left out of the side tonight after recovering from a foot injury sustained against St Helens.

Then Brian Carney has revealed that Leeming could be headed to a shock destination.

He said that he could be headed to the NRL.

Carney said on Sky Sports: “It may be the NRL he is headed to.”

He would later add: “There’s rumours circulating that it could be to the NRL and as specific as the North Queensland Cowboys.”

Tonight, after his Wigan Warriors side defeated Huddersfield Giants, Matt Peet was asked if the Warriors would be interested in Leeming.

Peet simply said: “No.”

It would be interesting to see the former Dream Team hooker at Wigan. Tonight Cade Cust did some minutes there before being taken off at the end of the game.

Meanwhile, youngster Brad O’Neill was 18th man.
