Corpus Christi teacher Ann Maguire tragically lost her life this week
Headingley Carnegie Stadium will pay their respects to Corpus Christi teacher Ann Maguire on Friday night with a minutes silence before kick off of the Leeds Rhinos versus Wigan Warriors game.
Mrs Maguire, who was originally from Wigan before moving to Leeds to teach, was tragically killed earlier this week and the decision has been taken because of the unprecedented nature of the incident and the subsequent outpouring of grief within the Leeds community.

Friday's minute silence is a chance for people from Leeds and Wigan to show our respects after such a shocking incident and show all those who have been impacted that they remain in our thoughts and prayers."
