ADRIAN Lam believes Leigh’s successful appeals to a disciplinary tribunal this week can be of benefit not only the Leopards but to the wider game.

And after a triple victory off the field, Lam hopes to enjoy more success on it when taking his squad to unbeaten St Helens on Friday night.

Centre Ricky Leutele is available to face Saints after a one-match ban for head contact in Leigh’s opening night defeat to Huddersfield was overturned.

And while prop Tom Amone remains suspended, he is now free to tackle Leeds Rhinos at LSV next Friday after his original punishment was halved.

Jack Hughes is back in pocket after a £250 fine for dangerous contact was rescinded.

“There are a lot of grey areas around the rulings and interpretations of the rules,” said Lam.

“We felt strongly the three cases were ones we could defend not just for our players-because it is the right thing to do- but for the game and our sport.

“There are concerns coming from everyone, from every angle. It’s not like it hasn’t been flagged prior to this point.

“It is important we acknowledge that because we are fighting hard to come up with the right result not only for the sport but for the direction the game wants to head in.

“I think everyone understands where we want to go to. It is just how we get there and the journey along the way to getting that balance right.”

Trying to beat Saints, who have won both their opening matches, scoring 68 points and conceding a solitary try, may be tougher than taking on the disciplinary.

“Saints are playing some good rugby so it will be a difficult job for us to go there, play well and win,” acknowledged Lam.

“When you lose in round one you want to be playing straight away to get back that confidence.

“But we have had to endure another week of the pain from round one which was tough to watch.”

With hooker Edwin Ipape out of action for upto two months with a ruptured medial ligaments, Leigh have recruited Brad Dwyer from Warrington, initially on a two-week loan.

“I am a fan of Brad,” enthused Lam. “I know what he is like as a person and a player.

“When I was at Wigan he single handedly tore us apart on several occasions.

“If it works with Brad in the next two weeks we will want to extend it as we go. But that is not solely in our control.”
