Rowley keeps faith with coaching staff
LEIGH boss Paul Rowley says his coaching staff will be staying put.
Assistant coach Neil Jukes has recently started a full-time position with the club, while under 20s coach Paul Anderson will also remain.
“Neil has been absolutely brilliant, as has Paul,” said Rowley.
“This time three years ago we had about four or five full-time members of staff dealing with rugby matters. For the past two years there’s been me and now Neil has come on board in the last month or so.
“Our output to the players has increased in the information they are given. We have managed more work with fewer bodies. What that has taken is huge commit-ment from Neil and Paul.
“The quality of work they have been doing has been fantastic. We are good friends. There is a lot of trust there and the players have full respect for them.
“Iit’s positive that we have seen some lads progress via Paul through the 20s into the first team, notably Pitman, Bullock and Bate.
“I think we can also be pleased that we have brought a lad into the team in the last two years that has progressed to being transferred for a healthy fee to one of the best clubs in the world in Sam Hopkins.”
This week has also seen Stuart Littler and Bob Beswick named in the all-star team of the year.
“It’s a reward for their consistency and efforts,” Rowley added.
“Both have been tireless and fearless in their performances. It’s fully deserved and probably one or two others could have squeezed in as well but we are proud of our two representatives.”
