LEIGH Centurions will field a new signing in tomorrow's friendly with Warrington Wolves at Leigh Sports Village, kick off 3pm.

Back rower has been brought in on a season-long loan from Barrow Raiders as a replacement for Simon Finnigan.

Head coach Paul Rowley said: "I tentatively enquired about Kurt in the close season, and with the announcement of Simon Finnigan's retirement, decided to revisit it to add to the competition out on the edges.

"Like Simon, Kurt possesses a good footballing brain and skill set to ensure we continue our philosophy of playing a good brand of Rugby League and attacking every opportunity."

And football director Derek Beaumont added: "I am delighted to see Kurt return to our club.

"Losing Simon altered the balance of where we had thought we were and the addition of Kurt addresses that balance.

"He has a bright future and is a player who fits in with our longer term planning."

Wolves could also field debutants in their side tomorrow, having named former New Zealand captain Roy Asotasi in their 22-man squad for the game as well as ex-Featherstone Rovers prop Anthony England.

Tony Smith has also included Leigh lad Micky Higham, Lowton's Ireland international Ben Currie and England's Stefan Ratchford in Warrington's ranks.
