Rhinos pair add to Sky Sports’ England coverage
Leeds Rhinos and England Wheelchair star James Simpson on Sky Sports
In a year when Rugby League is looking ahead to it’s biggest ever World Cup tournament, Sky Sports coverage of the mid-season womens and mens double header on Friday night showed just how much we have to look forward to this Autumn with Leeds Rhinos and England Wheelchair star James Simpson joining the hosts to cover the games whilst Rhinos Womens and England international Danika Priim was behind the microphone for the National Lottery International between England and Wales to give her expert insight into the Women’s international.
Wheelchair Rugby League is set to be in the spotlight like never before this Autumn as it joins the mens and womens tournaments for one united global event and the profile of Simpson, giving his views on the mens game, is fantastic for the sport.
Priim and Simpson follow on from Rhinos mens star Harry Newman making his debut on Sky Sports earlier this season and Rhinos Womens’ skipper Courtney Winfield-Hill impressing with her analysis in the opening round of Super League earlier this campaign.
