The former Great Britain scrum-half Andy Gregory is back in the game after a gap of more than six years. Gregory, sacked as coach of Salford in 1999, has been appointed coaching co-ordinator at Leigh, working under the new coach Tony Benson, with special responsibility to bring on the club's young players.

Gregory, who admitted to losing his job at Salford because of a drink problem, is flying out to Lanzarote with Leigh today for pre-season training.

Meanwhile, Harlequins RL have taken three players - Duncan James, Tom Williams and Jordan Turner-Hall - from their partner rugby union club to a pre-season camp in France.

Castleford are confident they will be given clearance today by the Australian club Wests Tigers to add Ryan McGoldrick to their squad for next season.

The funeral of the former Castleford player St John Ellis is at York Minster at 1.30 today.
