Video footage released of Leigh Leopards official in heated exchange with fan

VIDEO FOOTAGE has been doing the rounds on social media after a Leigh Leopards official was seen in a heated exchange with a supporter following last night’s 12-4 loss to St Helens.

The official and a fan were separated by a metal gate but the exchange turned ugly when voices appeared to be raised before the official had to be held back by members of the Leigh squad, including the likes of John Asiata and Tom Nisbet.

An object was eventually thrown that bounced off the supporters’ head before both men were separated as other supporters and Leigh representatives looked on.

It is unclear who the official is. The RFL have been approached for comment.

It was a costly night for the Leopards on the field, too, with both Asiata and Tom Briscoe suffering torn calves as the Leopards remain winless in 2024.
