The new year is just days away and with it will come a new Super League season just seven weeks into the beginning of the latest chapter of human history.
A new year is a time when everyone looks to make a new start and make a change as they begin a new year.
This is why we get New Year’s Resolutions every year from so many people.
This desire for a new start shouldn’t be restricted to people though and could very well apply to Super League clubs.
So, what should Leigh Leopards resolution be going into 2023?
For the Leopards, there is a clear aim: avoid relegation.
The Leopards, previously the Leigh Centurions, have been in Super League three times previously in 2005, 2017 and 2021 and every time suffered relegation.
Now in their fourth attempt, the rebranded Leopards after making a number of major signings such as Ricky Leutele from Huddersfield Giants and ex-Leeds Rhinos duo Tom Briscoe and Zak Hardaker, have to make a better fist of survival.
To further help in their efforts of securing survival and maybe even pushing for the play-offs, they could even make further signings.
Owner Derek Beaumont has even said they are keen on signing a middle and after losing Nene MacDonald to Leeds Rhinos and Blake Ferguson on compassionate grounds, an outside back could be secured expected to be Wigan Warriors youngster Umyla Hanley who has been training with the club.
As for the forward, former Catalans Dragons Dylan Napa and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves have been linked to the club.
