Leigh sign Addy for 2020

Leigh Centurions have confirmed the signing of Danny Addy from Hull Kingston Rovers.

The 28-year-old can play in a number of positions and has had spells at Bradford Bulls and Dewsbury Rams during his career, as well as being a Scotland international.

Addy missed the whole of 2018 with an ACL injury, but he returned in 2019 and made 22 appearances for the Robins, scoring three tries.

His signing adds a bit of experience to John Duffy’s side as they look to win promotion to the Betfred Super League.

Addy told the club website: “I can’t wait to pull on the Leigh shirt and get started. I’m looking forward to a big preseason and want to hit the ground running.

“I’ve worked with John (Duffy) at Scotland and have played against his teams and know what a good coach he is. It’s nice when someone like John has so much confidence in you and I’m looking forward to joining a good set of players who are looking for a big year.

“We are going to have a real dig though we know it will be a tough year in the Championship. As a player, you know that you never get an easy game against Leigh and I remember some heated battles while I was at Bradford. I’m ready to get stuck in.”
