Wigan prop joins Leigh Centurions on loan

Wigan Warriors announce that Prop Sam Hopkins has re-joined his former Club Leigh Centurions on a One month Loan Deal.

Sam joined Wigan from the Centurions on a Two-year contract last year and figured for the Warriors in a couple of their pre-season games .

Hopkins will be eligible to play for Paul Rowley’s men this weekend in the Tetley’s Challenge Cup as Leigh face Rochdale Hornets at Spotland.

Speaking about the news, Rugby Manager Kris Radlinski said;

“The One Month Loan provides Sam with an opportunity to get some important game time in a tough Championship competition. Sam has worked extremely hard since becoming a full time professional and is making huge strides with us but he needs to play regularly and this agreement with Leigh works well for all parties concerned. “
