After saying I was having a break from the Forum , the news that Chris Chester has been appointed as Director of Rugby with effect from tomorrow has really got my interest , Chris is a very knowledgable bloke who knows the game inside out and his appointment shows Derek has not been sat on his Derrière as a couple of posters have suggested and he still has a sharpe appetite to take the Centurions forward.
It will probably be the same with the Coacing appointment and the recruitment of players in the future , after reading both Derek and Chris Chesters statements it seems both are ready to move now and within the next few weeks start announcing new signings .

I think this will prove a couple of doubters wrong and hopefully we can get behind Derek , Chris Chester and the new Coach and show our support for the Centurions .Welcome to Leigh , Chris .

I reckon you've made a great acquisition there.
He took Wakefield higher than man other more illustrious coaches have done.

Liked him as a coach his teams always played attractive rugby,see hows it goes hope he doesn't end up as a scape goat,trouble is we have developed a reputation due to our owners behaviour and players don't want to come,time will tell .Good luck to the lad,we need continuity and stability

Welcome to Leigh Chris.


Very happy with this appointment as well.
He needs to be given the autonomy that Derek refers to though for sure.
Where have you read/heard he was offered other options within the club ?
I watch every game on DVD (thanks Fred) but it will never beat being behind the sticks.

I expect that Mr Haggerty will be retained as the coach for next season.

So do I with this appointment. Kurt may develop into a great young coach and has Chris as his boss to mentor him - worst case is he doesnt develop and Chris takes over.
I feel if we had supported Jukes with a suitable mentor in 17 then we would still be in SL

Very smart logic Harry , this appointment of Chris Chester as Head of Rugby , covers the vacancy left by Carvell, and also gives Kurt H the shoulder to lean on for advice , and leaves Derek not having to appoint a new man .

not sure that can work can only be 1 boss and one man picking the team,

Its another important year and an experienced coach is required keep Heggarty in his original post if we must
