As a young player, current Leeds Rhinos back rower Josh Jordan-Roberts got his first chance to train with stars of the Rhinos team when he attended Leeds Rhinos Foundation’s rugby camps, and he said he is looking forward to returning the camps this summer as a Rhinos player.

Jordan-Roberts, who played for Oulton Raiders as a junior was a regular attendee on the charity’s rugby and activity camps over the school holidays and he says he has fond memories of those days.

“I attended a Leeds Rhinos camps every year from being six to about twelve and I loved them.  When I was young I used to play football and rugby on a weekend so there was nothing better I could have thought of doing in my school holidays than playing more sport and meeting players from the team I supported,” he said.

“I remember going to the camps that were held at Leeds Beckett University and meeting Rob Burrow, who I remember had highlights at the time, and I got him to sign my boots for me!  It was great for me as a North Stander to go on camps and get the chance to meet the players and then see them later playing for the Rhinos.

“I had a big group of friends who went on the camps, so it was loads of fun with them and you always ended up making new friends too.  I went on both rugby and multi camps and enjoyed them both.  It’s good to have a go at different sports and get the chance to develop your rugby skills as a young player.

“From the age of 14 I went on to help out the Leeds Rhinos Foundation staff with running the camps and last year I attended them for the first time as a player which was good fun.  It’s fantastic to see so many children still attending the camps and I am looking forward to helping out again over the summer holidays.”
