Three Leopards feature in September teams of the month

Leigh Leopards are delighted to confirm a hat-trick of selections in September’s Rugby League World Teams of the Month across the Men’s and Women’s game.

Edwin Ipape (Impact Insurance) and Tom Amone (Caton Lloyd) both won selection in the Men’s format, covering Rounds 23-27 after maintaining their excellent individual form. Both were also recently honoured with selection in the competition’s Team of The Year alongside fellow Leopards John Asiata, Josh Charnley and Lachlan Lam.

Ellise Derbyshire (Plumbase) completes the trio by making her first appearance in the Women’s Team of the Month, covering Rounds 9-10 and the Semi-Finals. She follows in the footsteps of teammates Elise Gater and Toryn Blackwood who have also featured in the competition’s monthly team selections this year.

Nicknamed ‘The Jet’ Ellise followed up her success with the England RL DiSE team that played in France by scoring two tries in the Leopards’ 28-10 semi-final victory over Salford Red Devils at Twist Lane that earned Kieron Purtill’s side a place in the Promotion Grand Final at York on 8 October.
