Leigh sign Aussie half back

Leigh have signed former Australian schoolboy international half-back Joe Williams subject to visa clearance.

Williams, 25, has made 46 appearances in the NRL for South Sydney, Penrith and Cantebuery.

“He’s a great player,” said Leigh coach Neil Kelly. “He’s got great pace around the ruck which is something that we need at half-back and I’m really excited by his signing.

“We are just waiting for the UK Border Agency and the Australian authorities in Canberra to rubber stamp his move. I’m hoping he will be here towards the middle or the end of May.”
