Lenagan brands reserve set-up a ‘shambles’

Wigan Warriors chairman Ian Lenagan has labelled the current reserve set-up in rugby league as a ‘shambles’.

The remark made by Lenagan was in an official press release following Connor Farrell’s move to Widnes Vikings on a season-long loan. 

Although a reserve league has been set up for 2016 only nine games are due to be played, with the scheduling of the matches spaced out over the season.

This has caused Lenagan to speak of his frustration of how the current set-up is operating in rugby league and how the system is letting down promising youngsters such as Farrell. 

“Connor is a good young player who needs to be playing Rugby League regularly at a competitive level and the current shambles of Reserves/Dual-Registration does not allow that opportunity,” he said.

“We believe this move will help Connor achieve more senior game time which will help him improve as a player and allow him the chance to show his capabilities regularly on the Super League stage.”
