Leon Crick, manager of Leeds Rhinos Women said: “We have been overwhelmed by the success and support for Leeds Rhinos Women over the last twelve months. There has been growing interest in the women’s game and participation in Leeds schools and clubs is at on all time high. It is fantastic that there is now a pathway in Leeds for girls to play for a Super League team and the future for the women’s game is really exciting.

“The team achieved so much in their first season and we want to build on that and develop the team and the women’s game and we hope that any female player who is interested in getting involved will come down to the sessions. We also have the opportunity for girls who have never tried the sport before to come along on the 8th to give it a go and start their rugby league journey.“
