Leeds Rhinos fan and England cricket star Jonny Bairstow took time out in Melbourne this week ahead of the first one day international to visit Melbourne Storm’s AAMI Park home.

Bairstow is a massive Rhinos fan and was at Old Trafford in October to watch the Rhinos lift their eighth Super League title. After the disappointment of the Ashes defeat, England will be hoping for a better start to the One Day series against the Aussies when Eoin Morgan’s take on the home side at Melbourne Cricket Ground this weekend.

England will also be in Melbourne when the Rhinos arrive in town in February as they take on Australia in the final T20 game on Australian soil this winter at the start of the week that will end with Brian McDermott’s attempt to retain the World title for the Betfred Super League.
