Leigh have completed the signing of half-back Ben Reynolds from Wakefield on a permanent deal until the end of 2020.

Reynolds, 25, was the Centurions’ top points-scorer in 2018 before moving to Trinity.

Coach John Duffy said: “I’m delighted to get Ben back on board at our Club. He’s a player who knows what it means to play for Leigh Centurions and he’s very vocal on the field.

“He’s someone who can get us around the pitch and hopefully add value and competition to the halves, a department where we’ve gone off the boil in recent weeks.”

Reynolds made just six appearances for Wakefield, as well as playing six times on loan at Featherstone.

He said: “I’m looking forward to playing with a lot of my old team-mates again and starting to enjoy my rugby again.

“At my age I want to play every week, not just six or seven games. I want to get the consistency back in my game and having met Duffs it’s easy to buy into what he’s building here.

“We’ve got the rest of the league fixtures to look forward to and we’ll be pushing towards the play-offs so it’s an exciting time to be back at Leigh. I’m delighted to be back and I’ll be doing my best to help the club achieve its goals and aspirations.”
