'What is a true rugby stronghold Jay?'

Leigh to me represents all thats good about RL.Basically a one club town,where the supporters have stuck with club through good but mainly bad times.Whenever i speak to a Leyther,the club is generally one of the first things they want to discuss.The club represents the heartbeat of the town imo.It's people live and breath Leigh rugby.It's a shame WiganRL's proposed move to the M61 and the Reebok never came though because i'm sure Leigh's support would have flourished in some of the nearby urban areas like Hindley Green.

This is as opposed to the WiganRL club whose support is inflated by out of towners.Most people in Wigan are football fans of one persuasion or another.This town is a football town through and through that just happens to house a superleague rugby league team.
