Accepting they were thrown in last minute on half budget with no SL players available to buy, are they the worst ever SL team?
Mac out!

We (Leigh) could easily go the entire season without a win, some of the players are good but are being picked off already for next season, as a collective the team is poor !

Basic tackling techniques/skills are not there, backing off attacking player's allowing them even more room & to build speed, smaller man for man too !

I thought only Salford could save us but their win against the odds last night puts that to bed.

We had litlle Matty Russell playing in the middles at one point, just crazy, we've no Props to rotate & yet the club loan a Prop out !

What about Huddersfield finishing repeatedly bottom year after year when there was no relegation what were their stars? Given the situation they accepted less money no time and all SL players already under contract. Think this is churlish question. Because of these things Leigh were written off from the start. Here’s another question when you are such a strong team and dominant in a game why do you need to take another teams playmakers our.. bad head shots on Reynolds, Brierley and Mellor about 3 times. Should have been a yellow card in there somewhere probably the Brierley one.

I'm wondering if the jump from the championship to SL is just too much. Maybe a years grace should be given to promoted sides to settle the club for a 2nd year 'dig'.

That given the circumstances would have been the fair thing to do, last time round with the full money Leigh competed and finished 11th. Looks like the SL want P&R but with no risk of any of the existing teams getting relegated. I think with another year to build an SL team Leigh would succeed. But it will be same old story of best players cherry picket and building another team from scratch.

Maybe, but at least Sheffield Eagles wouldn't put 50 past us, eh ? :D
