18-year-old Warrington-born Leon Hayes has come through the ranks starting off as a young kid on our Foundation summer camps, attending Talent Development sessions before signing for our Scholarship side and progressing to play Academy and Reserves.
Leon represented both Rylands Sharks and Bank Quay Bulls community clubs as a junior and has been a lifelong dream to play first team for the club.
He is our Academy captain and has led from the front this year scoring 133 points including 7 tries from 11 appearances. He’s also set up 16 scores and on goal-kicking duties.
Leon was Lancashire captain during the recent Origin series where he impressed again in the 3-0 series whitewash.
His height draws comparisons to Rob Burrow and will wear shirt number 39.
