Hanson heads to Leigh

LEIGH CENTURIONS have formally confirmed another of their captures from Salford in backrower Harrison Hansen.

The former Wigan player joins Red Devils team-mates Cory Paterson and Reni Maitua at the club, leaving just Rangi Chase outstanding from the announcements made by director of rugby Derek Beaumont in a recent local radio interview.


The experienced Hansen made 238 appearances for Wigan, winning the Grand Final in 2010 and the Challenge Cup in 2011 before achieving the double in 2013. He turned down the opportunity of a testimonial at the Warriors to join Salford and made a total of 52 appearances for the Red Devils.
