Owner believes some Super League teams have “taken the opportunities” to be “unavailable” for games

Leigh Centurions owner Derek Beaumont is never short of a word or two.

And, in a long statement sent out to Leigh fans, Beaumont revealed that the RFL has praised the Centurions for the way in which they have handled the pandemic, with Beaumont claiming some other teams have advantage of “opportunities”.

“Our attitude to COVID and the difficulties that presents has a glowing report from the compliance department at the RFL,” Beaumont wrote.

We have had our own issues on top of our injuries but have presented ourselves, whatever the position, as available for every game and not taken the opportunities I believe other teams have done to capitalise on that.”

Just four Super League fixtures will again take place this weekend, as each week a seemingly new COVID outbreak rears its ugly head.
