Leeds are after him aren’t they? Leeming asked for a release.

He is a fine young player and would be a good signing

He is a decent player but we need to decide whether to buy or promote and our philosophy is to do the latter.

Leeds have signed him on a two year deal

You could have fooled me. Burgess, Bullock, Clubb, Flower, Isa, Clark, Greenwood, Hastings, Sammut, Bibby, French, Navarette, Escare, Hankinson, TL and Pearce-Paul are all buys and only Pearce-Paul is what you might term a junior player with the squad of 34.

I have no problem with it as I do not believe you can ever hope to produce a top team of home grown talent (though buying junior players like Pearce-Paul raises my eyebrows as we do supposedly have this production line) .

The fact were are happy to buy does make it frustrating if Leeming is a talent because hooker is definitely a position we need to look to improve.

Wigan’s policy, since the start of IFL’s reign, has clearly been to promote from within. That doesn’t mean, and will never mean, that we don’t recruit from outside the club, it would be foolhardy not to do so. We will still have the highest number of club trained players in our squad than any other team in SL in 2020.
