// Spencer Joins Leigh On Dual Registration
Wigan Warriors today announce that young prop Tom Spencer has joined Co-operative Championship side Leigh Centurions on a Dual Registration contract. This agreement allows Tom to play for either Wigan Warriors or Leigh Centurions combined with training at both clubs.
Tom made an impressive first team Warriors debut off the bench against Leeds Rhinos at the weekend and is a highly rated member of the squad who has earned this opportunity to continue his development with a top Championship Club.
The Dual Registration system has worked well for Wigan over the past couple of seasons with players gaining valuable experience at a tougher level of competition before returning and playing First Grade. Tom will spend the majority of the week with Wigan continuing his development before joining up with Leigh at the end of the week.
Rugby Manager Kris Radlinski said:
"We are very comfortable with the environment that Leigh provides and know that Tom will gain a great deal from this experience. Every party benefits out of the arrangement with the player getting valuable playing experience at Championship level and Leigh receiving a high quality young player to add to their playing squad."
Tom is pictured making his Wigan Warriors first team debut off the bench against Leeds Rhinos last Saturday.
