Tetley’s, official club sponsor of Leeds Rhinos arranged for Leeds Rhinos full-back and Leeds United fanatic, Richard Mathers, to meet up with Shaun Derry to wish the Whites luck ahead of their monumentous Play-Off Final clash with Watford this Sunday at the Millennium Stadium. Richard Mathers, said: "One thing Leeds can say is they’ve got a lot of depth, there’s loads of quality in the squad as opposed to last year and the year before. "Another big characteristic is their massive will to win. They’ve got drive and loads of character and just look at the experienced players like Paul Butler, Gary Kelly and Shaun. "It is a one-off game and the boys will be really buzzing after the Preston game. They can go there with no fear and enjoy the occasion. There’s a lot of experience in the side and they can definitely do a job on Watford." Shaun Derry, added: "It’s great that Richie is giving us his support for arguably the club’s most important game in the last five years, and on behalf of all the lads we wish him a speedy recovery from his injury and hope to see him pull on a Rhinos shirt again in the not too distant future." Gareth Roberts, Sponsorship Controller Carlsberg UK, commented: "Seeing Richie and Shaun together clearly demonstrates the support that the teams give each other in their respective sports. As official beer supplier at both clubs I’d like to wish United all the best for Sunday’s game and hope Richie has a quick return to action."
