Rhinos debut: v St Helens 25/03/2012

Before signing for the Rhinos Academy Stevie played for local amateur sides Churwell Chiefs and Hunslet Warriors and has drawn comparisons with Rhinos captain and fellow loose-forward Kevin Sinfield.

In July last year Stevie committed himself to a new long term contract with the World Champions after signing a five year contract to  keep him at Headingley Carnegie until at least the end of the 2017 Super League season.  He has been given the number 14 shirt ahead of the 2013 season, but remarkably given his progress, still qualifies for the new U19s side.

In 2012 he had a breakthrough season and established his place in the Rhinos first team, appearing in the Challenge Cup Final and the victorious Grand Final.  He made his debut aged 18 against St Helens and went onto make 21 appearances over the campaign and he scored his first try for the Rhinos against Widnes and scored a further try in the Play Off game against Catalan Dragons

During the season he was selected to play for England Academy for the tour to Australia but having broke into the first team opted to remain in England to play for the club.

As well as his commitments to the first team Stevie also made nine appearances for the U20s during the 2012 campaign and registered an impressive seven tries and also represented the U20s and played in the Nines tournament for Leeds.

He was the inaugural John Holmes Trophy winner in 2010 and joined the Rhinos that same year, making his first appearance for the U18 against Hull KR in the Valvoline Academy.

In 2009 he was part of the England youth squad who took part of the England youth squad who took part in the European Nations Cup in Serbia alongside France, Wales, Serbia, Scotland, Russia and a European Celts side.

He represented England Academy in 2010 and was a try scorer in their narrow defeat to France and the following year was named in the England Academy side, representing them in their game against the Australian Institute of Sport alongside fellow Rhinos players James Duckworth and Jordan Baldwinson.

A fortnight before playing in the Challenge Cup Final Stevie received his A level results from Woodkirk Academy and gained an A in P.E. and B's in English Literature and English Language.

He has a twin sister and all his family are massive Rhinos supporters and when his playing career is over he would like to pursue a career in journalism.

The player he admires most in the game is Darren Lockyer and his all time favourite film is Ace Ventura.
