I can't help but feel sorry for Rhys Evans and do not blame him one bit for wanting his contract paid out.
Leigh signed him on a 3 year deal, starting 2018, and Beaumont is absolutely out of order in attempting to blame players for not moving on to likely lower deals or out of the sport all together so that the legal entity of Leigh can continue.

RL players have mortgages and bills to pay like anyone else and a contract is a contract.

Beaumont gambled on Leigh getting promotion, his gamble failed, now he doesn't want to pay for the consequences. Like a gambler who puts a wedge on red, only for it to come up black, and he's scrambling at the table to get his chips back.

Rhys has a contract and Leigh should honour that contract. Like the test of us Rhys has a montage & family to provide for. As Wires71 says Beaumont gambled and lost but thats not Rhys fault.

This could be just the start of many more problems like this. Professional terms are just that & you can't expect a player to suddenly find a job to supplement his income if a pay cut or even if part time player status is called for. This must be a nightmare for clubs & staff who get promoted one year then go straight back down.

I didn't know Rhys was into film editing.

Beaumont could have put non-promotion clauses into player's contracts, which would have been a financially sound descision.

However this would have meant that the offering was less appealing to prospective players, and those players might have taken other offers elsewhere.

Had Rhys been offered 3 yrs at Leigh with a significant wage cut and/or break clause if they fail to win promotion in 2018, he possibly looks at other offers from other clubs.

Beaumont knew exactly what he was doing. To secure the talent, he offers 3 yrs on decent money. Rhys takes the best offer that suits his circumstances - in this case the deal at Leigh. It should be honoured.

Exactly as others have said - Beaumont has gambled and lost. He should take responsibility and not try and spin the story around "greedy players".

And yet people still want relegation in superleague, rather than the qualifiers and million pound game.

Bryson Goodwin must thank his lucky stars that Wire took him off Leigh.

I've always thought the best solution was to have a small SL2 but as an enhanced championship with 2 less teams and equally share of the sky money.

It might be in essence just a name change (due to the constant system changes) as with Div1 to premiership band Div2 to championship in football...but it still bolstered the sponsorship monies by millions.
