Ferguson as won the set for life lottery at leigh as he on the same amount of money a month but I don’t think it will for for 30 years at this rate might only get 3 week


10k a month :shock: :shock: feck moi, mind although sounds a lot probably not a lot for someone with his reputation/skill, but if he’s here to take the pish which seems to be the case then a complete waste of money and likely mess up the squad bond

Let’s give him a chance we have benefited from other senior imports. No point him playing until he has fitness. His big match experience could be valuable at the business end of the season.

I take it the negative hush-hush, I-know-something-you-don't stories on this thread can pivot to "Blake Ferguson will play only one game for Leigh"?

WOW, the lad is in a class of his own. If he is still not fully fit, then what the hell can we expect when he is?
Not sure I have ever seen a former Aussie international in the Leigh Cherry and Whites. I like it a lot.

At the time of his signing I wasn’t convinced it was a position we needed more numbers with Having Brand , Inu ,Dixon and Hitchcox, however he is here now and you don’t bring someone in from the other side of the world over and don’t play him, unless it’s for mis behaving.
As long as he’s kept on the straight and narrow there isn’t a winger in this league who can lace his boots and that goes for a a few SL wingers as well .
As far as Ex Internationals go earliest I can remember is Ian Schubert with more recent ones being Tonga and Stewart

Ian Schubert 1986-1987 (21 Appearances) (4 Aussie caps)
Willie Tonga 2016-2017 (9 Appearances) (12 Aussie caps)
Glenn Stewart 2017 (24 Appearances) (5 Aussie caps)
Blake Ferguson 2022 (1 Appearance) (7 Aussie caps)

Ok, so my memory is not great. The point I was making is that Leigh have had a series of middling wingers since the days of Des Drummond and Phil Fox. There have have been notable veterans like Barry Lager, players on the way up Liam Kay, and plenty on the way down. Last season we had what I though was going to be excellent wingers in Matty Russell (6 Appearances) and Lewis Tierney (10 Appearances), sadly proved wrong. Wingers have always seemed to be an after thought at Leigh over the last 40 years.

Currently we have Inu and Ferguson and I am ultra impressed at the quality they bring to the team. They are reliable finishers, quick and strong, and don't mind doing the dirty stuff.

Leigh were starting to gel as team and now we have a 6ft 3in speedster as the cherry on top of the cake.

Apologies, I wasn’t trying to catch you out as I’m sure there maybe a few more
Agree totally regarding the wingers , Liam Kay being the the best we have had for a long time, considering he was brought in as a half back (I think) was a masterstroke from Rowley playing him on the flank.
We have a few players now who can go length of the field, this with a very dominant pack should keep us in good stead come playoff time

Snap !
Posted on the retention thread as you were posting here Budgie.
This is great news.
First game was in 1967, and have been hooked since day 1. Now live in Vancouver, Canada but follow our team any way I can.
