Gregg McNally has agreed a new deal to remain with Leigh Centurions for the 2020 Betfred Championship season.

The 28-year-old returned to Leigh last season after gaining a release from Bradford Bulls. He managed to play 25 games last season, scoring 17 tries in the process.

He first arrived at Leigh in 2012 playing alongside current Centurions head coach John Duffy, and went on to make nearly 150 appearances for the club. In that time, he scored 94 tries and kicked 20 goals.

The Ireland international was a member of Leigh’s Northern Rail Cup-winning team in 2013 and also scored a try in the 2014 Championship Grand Final triumph over Featherstone Rovers.

On returning to Leigh from Bradford, he proved his versatility in the 2019 season by playing on the wing when called upon as well as at full-back, finishing as the club’s top try-scorer and was crowned the LISA Player of the Year. He also became only the 11th player in Leigh history to score one hundred tries for the club.

He said: “There was only ever one club I wanted to be at next season so I’m delighted to be staying at Leigh.

“I count myself as an adopted Leyther and my family are very happy here. I’m really looking forward to getting a good pre-season under my belt because I have not had a full pre-season in two years. I’m desperate to improve my fitness and make sure I’m ready for the new season.

“I was frustrated to lose my place at the back end of last season so I will be working hard and want to lay down a marker.”
