Leigh confirm signing of Chase

Championship side Leigh Centurions have signed Rangi Chase on a two-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months.

The 2011 Man of Steel was a free agent after being released from his four-year contract at Salford following a ‘disciplinary procedure.’

The 29 year-old England international stand-off scored seven tries in 17 appearances for the Red Devils last season, but did not feature for them following the 41-10 defeat to Bradford Bulls in the Middle 8s.

Chase moved to Salford from Castleford, where he made 129 appearances during five seasons at the club.

“It’s not a gamble to step down a division. I’m looking forward to enjoying my footy again which I will do here,” Chase told a Leigh press conference.

Centurions head coach Paul Rowley said of his latest signing:  “Rangi has undoubted class that I am sure will flourish within our team. I will look forward to challenging Rangi in different roles to ensure we bring the best out of him and that the team benefits from his presence.”

Chase’s try assist for Salford against Hull FC last season went viral:
