The Yorkshire Evening Post has teamed up with the Leeds Rhinos and Tetley's, the club's official sponsor, to give Rhinos fans the chance to vote for their outstanding player each month throughout the season. Voting has now opened for April and with some outstanding individual and team performances, fans are going to find it hard to single out their player of the month. Maybe you will look to some of the Rhinos' unsung heroes, such as forwards Matt Diskin, Ryan Bailey or Gareth Ellis, who all featured heavily in the four victories during April. Keith Senior and Richard Mathers continue to impress in the backs but the choice is yours for the Rhino you think has been head and shoulders above the rest during the last few rounds of action. Rhinos' fans can email their vote along with their own name, address and telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org or send a postcard to: Tetley's 'Rhino of the Month', Ptarmigan, 423 Kirkstall Road, Leeds, LS4 2EZ. Every fan that enters a vote will also be in with a chance of presenting the winning 'Rhino of the Month' with his trophy and claim a pair of tickets to a Rhinos home match for themselves. Denise Rymer, of Hunslet, claimed that honour last month when she presented Rob Burrow with his award for March but it could be you making the next presentation, so make sure you register your vote for the 'Tetley's Rhino of the Month'.
Leeds Rhinos Head Coach Brian McDermott says his team's preparations have gone well this week but there is no danger of the Rhinos underestimating a Hull KR side who have produced some impressive performances in the Cup this season.
Leeds Rhinos Chief Executive Gary Hetherington was joined by Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Liam Sutcliffe along with representatives from Hull KR, the RFL and the Parliamentary RL Group at the Cenotaph at Whitehall to pay their respects to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
It will be an emotional occasion for Doreen Ashton, the wife of the late Eric Ashton, tomorrow prior to the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final when she sees her husband immortalised in bronze as a member of the Rugby League Legends Wembley Statue.
