Zak Hardaker on Leigh move

“Me and Lammy (Adrian Lam) have had a real good friendship ever since Wigan,” Hardaker said. “He’s always been a guy that wants to check up on you, which goes a long way in this game.

“I think Lammy being here, the vision of the new logo, the Leopards, Leigh being back in Super League, the quality of players that they’ve already got. Personally, I want to be top four, get to a Grand Final and win something. I wouldn’t come here if I didn’t think that.”

As revealed previously by Love Rugby League, Nene Macdonald has also been re-signed for the next campaign
