RICKY Leutele will be staying in Super League following his exit from the Huddersfield Giants!

Leutele was the subject of a long debate about whether or not he would be staying at the John Smith’s Stadium with his contract running out at the end of 2022.

Now, however, he will be a part of Leigh Leopards’ new era as the club attempts to be a stable Super League club.

Head of Rugby Chris Chester said he was proud of making a “huge coup” for Leigh, stating: “Ricky is undoubtedly one of the top centres in the whole of Super League and is a huge coup for Leigh Leopards.
