The story of Leigh Beattie is almost hard to believe. Originally joining the Bulls over 20 years ago working as a junior groundsman, the now assistant coach of the first team worked his way up the ladder with hard work and persistence.
Moving from Odsal’s field to Tong training facility, Beattie began working as the club’s kit man, earning a place in the England outfit.
Beattie’s position within the training facility allowed him to showcase his extensive Rugby League knowledge, earning the role as Under 19s Head coach and Under 16s assistant coach.
Following the appointment of John Kear, Leigh was selected to join the first team coaching panel, working closely with Kear as his assistant coach.
