Leigh have confirmed the signing of Scotland international Danny Addy for the 2020 season.

The 28-year-old loose forward has been at Hull KR since 2017, scoring 11 tries. He has earned 16 caps for Scotland on the international stage.

Centurions coach John Duffy said: “Danny is a player I’d like to build everything around.

“If you watched Toronto last season, everything revolved around Jon Wilkin and I think Danny’s got those kind of qualities in abundance.

“He is a natural leader and I think he’s a great player. I have worked with him at Scotland for around eight years and he is a team-first man.

“He is very underrated and very skilful. He dictates play well when he’s got that freedom and we’ll be looking to build around him next season.”
