Another one of our degsys statement of "intent" rob,i can hardly wait.

Me neither, i must admit when DB stated this years squad would be better i was a little unsure but the signings so far are miles better than some of the previous recruitment.

Signing to many players in 2015/16 on 2 & 3 yr contracts who were over tje age of 30 cost us dearly this season.lessons been learned i think.

Got to be happy with this signing

Great signing by Leigh. No disrespect intended to the club but it's a bizarre decision on his part.

It all depends on the salary cap squeeze at his current club. The Knights have spent big and may need to shed a few players. They may even be still subbing part of his wages. Happens quite a bit in the NRL.

Classy player and a great signing,weren't Saints after him ?

It was rumoured but unclear where he would fit in given we already have 2 centres for next year, and he wouldn't really be an obvious choice at 2nd row given he's predominately a centre.

As a Knights fan I’m a big fan of Peter and sad to see him go. A really underrated classy player who will be outstanding in he Championship. The reason he has left the Knights is we were only offering a one year deal. I’m assuming Leigh have offered him a multi year contract. Best at centre but can also play fullback and wing, a great singing for Leigh imo

Leigh and Mata'utia must be assuming the retention of promotion and relegation in 2018-19.

They may all get burned.

Well seeing as Derek Beaumont has been involved in all the SL chairman meetings this year discussing the structure I'm sure he'll have a fairly good idea of what the next structure will look like.

To say this is a quality signing by Leigh is an understatement.

This bloke is still good enough to play in the NRL

Is he still good enough to play in the Championship though? A big step up required......... :)

Great signing for Leigh or anyone for that matter, I’d have loved him at Wakefield where his ability to draw defenders and free his winger would have seen Johnstone, Caton-Brown or Jones-Bishop score bucketloads

It certainly caught us Leythers by surprise. Still early days in squad announcements for next year but with Mata'utia and Ben crooks/rhys evans playing for the 2 centre spots that's certainly an improvement on last year

I think the jury is still out on Ben Crooks.

In my opinion he might be championship standard but not Super League standard what i have seen of him.

He could probably do with a little more pace, but if he works hard and gets a little more guile then he could be a half decent SL centre. His former was patchy last year, great in some games anonymous in others. I don't think it really helped though that he never had a regular wing partner due to injuries and reshuffles.
