The record they are attempting to break is the record for "The most people wearing paper crowns at an event". This ambitious world record attempt will take place at half time on the stadium running track and will see children and adults from local schools, clubs and community organisations across South Leeds wearing paper crowns designed by South Leeds Academy students for more than 5 minutes. The attempt will be ratified by officials from the Guinness book of world records, and will also be shown on Premier Sports live coverage on the night.
This season has seen a number of Leeds Rhinos players represent the Hawks as part of the dual registration arrangement between the clubs, including young centre Jimmy Keinhorst, who says that he and his team mates are getting ready to kick start the second half of the Championship season when they take on John Kear's Batley Bulldogs.
Looking ahead to the game Keinhorst, who is the Hawks leading try scorer this season said: "Batley will be tough but we are looking forward to the challenge. We lost there over Easter and probably came away from that game thinking we were unfortunate not to at least get a losing bonus point from that match. That probably summed up the first half of the season for us. We have played some good stuff but we have been inconsistent too, which has been frustrating. We have got a great chance in front of the TV cameras and all the Rhinos boys to produce a good performance that can help us kick on for the second half of the season on Thursday."
It is free entry for this game for children 16 years and only £14 for adults. Don't forget Leeds Rhinos Season tickets will receive half price on their match day ticket when showing their season ticket at time of purchase.
