"The State of Mind programme was established in 2011 with the aim of improving the mental fitness, wellbeing and working life of Rugby League players and communities and we want you to belong to the State of Mind Family," – State of Mind's Phil Cooper.

The themed round kicks-off in front of the Sky Sports TV cameras on Thursday August 15, when Warrington Wolves host Widnes Vikings.

Followed 24 hours later by defending champions Leeds Rhinos against Hull KR, in what should be another thrilling fixture televised by Sky Sports.

Fans will be able to visit the State of Mind marquee – where they can interact with volunteers to learn about the campaign – at those two games along with Hull FC v Salford City Reds, London Broncos v Huddersfield Giants and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats v St Helens.

State of Mind volunteers will also be handing out flyers and car stickers at the Castleford Tigers v Bradford Bulls match, whilst Catalan Dragons and Wigan Warriors players will show their support by wearing branded t-shirts during their pre-game warm-up.

"The RFL are pleased to support the State of Mind programme by dedicating a Round of Super League matches to highlight the work that the organisation does promoting mental health and wellbeing, which is vitally important within all professional sports and their wider communities," said RFL Chief Executive Nigel Wood.

Now in its third year, State of Mind explores and promotes initiatives relating to suicide prevention by targeting groups to deliver a range of awareness raising options focusing on mental fitness and resilience.

"The State of Mind programme was established in 2011 with the aim of improving the mental fitness, wellbeing and working life of Rugby League players and communities and we want you to belong to the State of Mind Family," said State of Mind's Phil Cooper.

"Whoever you support, you can join the State of Mind Family and be part of this amazing, award-winning movement.

"Show your support come and say hello to a volunteer at games, take a mental fitness card and wear our tee-shirt."

Almost 1000 players, coaches and support staff from Super League and the Championships, the three professional leagues in this country, have attended State of Mind sessions, with 95% of those attending never having had mental health training before.

Sessions continue to be run at Super League clubs in particular, most recently at Huddersfield and St Helens, focusing on mental fitness to ensure people can manage the ups and downs of life effectively and encourage people to access support if it is needed.

Leeds Rhinos 12 Hull KR 16

16th August 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

Despite two tries from Kallum Watkins the Rhinos lost out to Hull KR at Headingley Carnegie with two second half Michael Dobson penalties sealing the win for the Robins.

Leeds Rhinos made an emotional return to Headingley Carnegie to face Hull KR as the club marked the passing of former Head Coach Graham Murray.

Murray's wife Amanda and his daughter Cara were joined on the pitch by Club President Harry Jepson OBE and former players Barrie McDermott and Daryl Powell to lay flowers on the 1999 shirt that Murray's team wore so famously at Wembley. This was followed by a video tribute and an emotional minutes applause from the supporters.

The Rhinos dominated the early exchanges and came close to opening the scoring when James Duckworth marked his home debut with a smart offload to Kallum Watkins. Watkins broke through the cover before finding Kylie Leuluai. He was stopped short of the line but a crossfield kick on the last tackle, and a good chase, trapped Omari Caro in goal and Rovers were forced to drop out. However, Leeds could not strike an early blow.

They had to wait until the 20th minute to finally break down some stubborn visitors defence when Liam Sutcliffe pushed off an attempted tackle by Michael Dobson and galloped up field. He drew the cover before passing inside to Watkins, who raced through to score his 16th try of the season. Kevin Sinfield added the conversion to take him to 3,001 career points in Super League games.

Hull KR came back at Leeds and got a fortunate break on the back of some good pressure. Dobson’s cross field kick was spilled by Ryan Hall in traffic and, despite replays suggesting a possible knock on by Sean Gleeson, referee Richard Silverwood had no hesitation in awarding the score to Jordon Cox, who picked up the loose ball and had the simple job of touching down. Dobson added the conversion to level the score after 25 minutes.

The visitors had the better chances in the remainder of the half and they took advantage with the final play before the break when Dobson released Rhys Lovegrove down the touchline. Ben Jones-Bishop came across to cover, expecting the forward to pass back inside but by the time he committed the tackle, the Rovers man was able to drag him over the line with him to score in the corner. Dobson added an excellent touchline conversion to give his side a 12-6 lead at the interval.  

The visitors were then able to extend their lead after Sinfield put his drop out straight out of play and Dobson had the simplest of chances from ten metres out to make it 16-6 with twenty minutes to play.

Leeds looked like they had got a score back with 15 minutes to go when Ryan Hall touched down Sinfield’s spinning kick. This time referee Silverwood did decided to refer the decision to video referee Ian Smith and he judged that Hall had lost control of the ball in the act of grounding it and denied the score.

With a commanding lead going into the final ten minutes, Rovers were happy to complete their sets, kick down field and force Leeds to attack from deep. The Rhinos nearly found a way through when Hall broke clear but his pass back inside to Hardaker was touched by a defender and it was enough to allow Rovers to regroup.

Leeds finally got Headingley Carnegie on its feet with six minutes to go. There was a sense that the pressure would eventually create an opening and it finally did. Rovers were caught flat footed and Sinfield kicked across field. Young Duckworth showed incredible maturity to allow the ball to bounce, take it in before setting off down field, drawing the last man and passing back inside for Watkins to score his second try of the game. Sinfield added the conversion from out wide to make it 12-16.

Leeds looked like they might immediately equalise with a sensational break involving Hardaker and Hall but the wingers high pass back inside narrowly fell from the fingertips from Sinfield and the chance had gone.

The Rhinos battled hard to the final hooter but Rovers were determined to end a three game losing run and they managed to hold on to secure a well deserved victory.
