Debut: v Wakefield 30/07/2012
 

German international Jimmy Keinhorst joined Leeds in 2011 after impressing whilst playing for Leeds Met and Great Britain students and former Leeds player and coach Paul Fletcher spotted his potential.

He got his Rhinos first team call up in 2012 against Wakefield Wildcats after impressing in the Academy and in the Nines tournament.  That year he also played 15 games and scored ten tries for the Under 20s.

Jimmy spent much of the 2013 season on a dual registration at Hunslet where he scored 13 tries in 15 appearances but the Leeds management were keen to secure his future with the Rhinos and awarded him a new three year contract at the end of the year.

After starting the 2014 season on loan with Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, Jimmy returned to the Rhinos in September to feature against Wigan and was included in Brian McDermott’s squad for the 2015 campaign. He is also on dual registration with Hunslet.

He played 15 games for the U20s in 2012 and scored ten tries and also featured in the Nines tournament for the Rhinos. He made his debut in the league game against Wakefield Wildcats and scored a try in his next game against Widnes Vikings

Jimmy then earned a place in the Challenge Cup Final against Warrington in only his fourth senior game. His season ended when he suffered a knee injury playing for the U20s, meaning he missed out on their Grand Final defeat against Warrington Wolves and had to have surgery on his knee injury in the close season.

He has played for Heidelberger RL in Germany, who he won the 2010 German Bundesliga and made eight appearances for.

In 2011 played for the University of Queensland in Australia and in 2011 he played Rugby Union with Otley in the close season making eleven appearances and scored three tries.

He made his debut for Germany in an ENC match against Poland on 20 November 2010 and scored his first try for Germany a week later, against the Netherlands in Amsterdam.

He has represented Germany RL as well as England Students, who he won the Home Nations Tournament with, and Great Britain Students, who he won the Academic Ashes with, and in 2010 played for the German Rugby Union side.

His three older brothers Kristian, Markus, Nicholas all play international Rugby League for Germany.

He played in the same Germany rugby league national side as his three brothers in an international match against Czech Republic which granted him a place in the Guinness Book of Records, for the record of most siblings to play in a rugby league international match.

His father, Wolfgang, is a former lecturer the School of Languages at Leeds Met. Jimmy attended St. Mary's Catholic High School, Menston and is now studying Sport and Exercise Science at Leeds Met.
