Championship club Leigh have announced the signing of Australian half-back Jarrod Sammut from Wigan for 2020.

The 32-year-old former Crusaders, Bradford, Wakefield, Workington and London Broncos half-back was halfway through a two-year contract with the Warriors.

Leigh coach John Duffy said: "Jarrod is someone who you can't plan to counteract. He plays off the cuff and I think that's something we missed at times last season.

"We want him to use all the experience he has - especially in the Championship when he helped London Broncos to promotion - to help us at Leigh Centurions."

Sammut, who made 14 appearances for Wigan in 2019, kicked London's points in their shock 4-2 win over Toronto in the 2018 Million Pound Game in Canada which took the Broncos into Super League.
