Leigh land Wigan forward Callum Field

Leigh have signed young forward Callum Field from Wigan for the 2020 season.

The 22-year-old came through Wigan’s academy and made 10 first-team appearances for the Warriors. He can play anywhere in the forward pack.

Leigh coach John Duffy said: “I coached Callum over at Wigan when he was about 16.

“He’s one of the best forwards I’ve seen come through in recent years but he didn’t get the opportunities at Wigan.

“He played at Dewsbury for a spell last season so he knows what the Championship is about. It’s going to be a big learning curve for him and hopefully he can get plenty of game time.

“Callum is an aggressive player, someone I like watching and someone who fits in with how we want to play.”
