BROWN TO REPRESENT THE RHINOS IN 'KING OF THE KICKERS'

Leeds Rhinos are putting forward Simon Brown to represent them in the annual prestigious engage King of the Kickers competition organised by Super League title sponsor, engage Mutual.

The event will be shown on the BBC’s The Super League Show on Sunday 16th August and challenges the players’ skills in a variety of kicking disciplines such as goal kicking, cross field bombs, the grubber and drop kicks.

Up and coming talent Simon will go up against a number of other top kickers, such as last year’s champion, Tom Hemingway, and challenges including Craig Hall, Paul Deacon and Danny Brough.

As well as being crowned King of Kickers 2009, the winner will have the opportunity to nominate a charity of their choice for £250 donated by engage.

Tina Clare, head of brand at engage commented: “This is a unique event in the Super League calendar, offering the opportunity for top kickers to measure themselves against the best in the field.”
