Hasn't leigh got some understanding with Wigan? I know its not a link up as such. Also the eagles are linked with a French club so in theory there is only 3. Us ,fax and barrow.Also I'm very proud of our club for not becoming a feeder team I'm sure we will benefit from it more than the link up clubs do in the future.c@s will be our feeder club in 2015í ½í¸‰
Gaz, Leigh has no official link up with any SL club. Our connections with Wigan are focussing mainly on our Foundation and theirs pooling resources. We currently have one loan player from Wigan, but we are not restricted to using them to loan players from.
Richard Moore had a very good game for Hunslet today, but how often will they get to use him? In my opinion, D/C should only be used to give young SL players a chance to progress. It was as recently as the off season that we were told that, as SL teams were jettisoning their U-23's, there would be a raft of young players out of a job - yeh right, youngsters like Paul Wood, Tyrone Mccarthy, Richard Moore, Kylie Leuluai, Ade Gardner, etc. etc. etc.
We're up at Whitehaven on Thursday (what a place to spend Valentine's evening!) and fully expect to encounter 3 or 4 of Saints first team squad!
