Leigh will be bottom of the league or there abouts just like every other time.

I guess we’ll see but if ever there’s a season when the promoted club doesn’t start the season as red hot favourites for relegation then this is it.

Is that what you hope for Chris? perhaps you have not been keeping up to speed with how Leigh have gone about things a little differently this year in approaching the transition to SL from the Championship.

Well done to Leigh and well done to all their fair- minded and loyal fans. You've taken a lot of stick, (mainly in jest) but let's hope you can sustain an SL presence.

To the  fans of Leigh on here who don't maybe fit that template,...tough.

👍😀

Hope for? No.

how is signing way over the quota of over seas players than allowed in SL decent preparation for SL?

What recruitment have Leigh firmed up for next year?

Nothing announced yet until GF was done, hopefully they get season tickets out ASAP and start making the announcements to keep the momentum. Rumoured done deals are Gareth O'Brien, Rob Mulhern, Jack Hughes, Matt Davis, Jacob Gannon and Ricky Leutele if Nene Macdonald goes to Leeds but will be more to announce in terms of retentions and pick ups. By my reckoning, there are at least 19/20 signed up including pretty much all our best imports(main exception is Sam Stone who is rumoured to be off to Melbourne Storm next year).

What do Leigh add to SL?

How many young Leigh players were in that team and squad this evening?

None mate, but we are a town of some 47,000, perhaps we would be full of home grown talent just like Leeds is if we had 520,000?

And why we are at it you can only attract about 13,000 from that number, demographically apart from London you are the worst supported team in the country.

So what do Leigh add to SL if they have no homegrown players and not much of a fan base to draw upon?

how many over seas quota players were in your starting 13 tonight?

1. Plenty leigh born players in SL, just that they tend to go to clubs that aren't restricted against having a cat 1 academy.

2. More than we'll be allowed in SL, but Chester and Lam have been recruiting for a SL squad for 2023, that meets the quota rules, since May.

3. Have a day off

Have you got a problem with Leigh it comes over loud and clear that you have, I couldn't give a flying feck what your opinion is, lets just wait until next season to see if your seemingly wish comes true and Leigh are vanquished from the top flight forever, they will obviously have to play to the rules just have they have this season on o'seas recruits, and still be behind the paywall of SC dispensations of academy players that some clubs enjoy.

He is just another of those born in the manor of a rich club who likes to turn their nose up at anyone who tries to better themselves, keep the b'stards down is useually their motto.

Congratulations Leigh, truly the best championship side I have ever seen, well deserved promotion.

Thanks for a great night and to all the fans wishing us well after the game. 

Best of luck for next season.

I walked along the side that the Batley fans were coming out of and congratulated as many as I could on both their and the teams efforts, I will really miss going to visit Batley next season, one of the iconic Rugby League grounds.

Ironically, Leigh is about half the distance to Batley from where I live now. I'll be making a few Friday night trips to LSV next season to cheer you on. I'll be the one in the dog's shirt 😉.

This whole "what do xxx bring to Super League" is tiresome.

Leigh were the best team in the Championship and deserve their place in Super League.

Earned through on field success and not pen pushers with arbitrary and subjective checklist.

If I was a Leigh fan I'd be made up with how we've pi££ed off so many people tonight. Love all this "what do they bring to Superleague" rubbish. Jesus, they'll bring as much or little as half the current inhabitants. Well done Leythers, enjoy tonight.

Just because you think everyone hates you doesn't mean they don't.

The irony is; they have earned the right to be there. They have a ground fit for purpose and haven’t blagged the 1995 Framing the Future thing unlike a couple of clubs in there.
