The agreement of the 4 non twinned clubs looks very similar to this partnership agreement, Leigh have always advocated DC's and had previously worked with Wire mainly. The concept of U23 only, retention of control and no returning SL players will be interesting to watch as that is the fundamental flaw with twinning at Hunslet and Swinton.

Isn't it still within the memorandum of understanding agreed by the four clubs? Under 23 players only

I'd wager you'll see a Tomkins in a Leigh shirt before the end of the season as Logan gets some game time!

He might aswell take his Wigan shirt, they're both practically the same. Save Leigh some pennies on printing and washing.

Oops, forgot the ;) ;) :P

Some other DR clubs are claiming the same, Batley for example? Perhaps others.

Do what you want,but countless threads with the same old arguments is self defeating.


They're all the same old rubbish.

Is it really just another step towards being a feeder club :(


How can it ever be that when it's the SL club that feeds the players to the Championship club?

"A" team.... :D

Oh? then they won't be Wigan "A" or a feeder team then.

Well done leigh-just gone back on everything you have said and with your arch enemy to boot! If I was a Leigh fan I would be worried and also feel betrayed a little, as the board said I am sure earlier, that they would not be entering a Partnership with Wigan. If a club has to do this to save money then fair enough , but be honest about it. The Statement is just a load of garbage trying to justify it without admitting you have gone back on your word for me

Wigan "Under 23's"?

Not sure what they'll turn out to be Parky. All I'm going on is what Paul Rowley said last night on Premier Sports which was that Leigh would be sticking to the agreement made with the other three clubs. Time will tell whether they do.

Sounds pretty similar to York's partnership with Hull FC.

Fair play and good luck to them I say.

True Mark, and if they continue that way I've no real problem with it. My concern is whether the maximum five DR players turns into 8 or 10 next season, which I think it will, and of course, the use of established SL stars needing game time.
