Leigh head of rugby Derek Beaumont says the club will be better prepared for 2016 after a full year as a full-time club.

The players return to training on Monday and are desperate to improve on their 2015 showing when the topped the table only to falter in the Super 8 qualifiers.

Writing in his exclusive Leigh Observer column, Beaumont said: “Last year was a big learning curve for our club as we made the transition to a professional full time outfit and I am sure we will be better for it along with the experience being added to the squad with our new recruits.

“We will again prepare in Lanzarote for our warm weather camp at Club La Santa which worked very well last year returning on January 10 in readiness for three friendlies before the start of the season with a trip away to Batley on February 7.

“At this stage we have Warrington Wolves away on January 24 confirmed, We are hoping to keep our tradition with a continued friendly with our neighbours of the borough Wigan along with resuming our rivalry with Salford – confirmation of which will follow.”

Derek Beaumont’s column appears in the Leigh Observer every Tuesday.
