BIOGRAPHY

Winger Ben Markland is in his second year in the Rhinos Academy and following a successful 2018, he will be wanting to show progress under coach Rob Burrow. The Bruntcliffe academy student scored back to back tries in his first two games for the academy last season but a lengthy eight game period, prevented Markland from extending his try tally. Ending up with five tries in the 15 games, he capped the year off with a Grand Final appearance against Wigan, which is his greatest rugby achievement to date. The former Dewsbury Moor player takes a lot of inspiration from his dad and will look to gain a regular start this season. Markland’s favourite music artist is American rapper Kanye West and likes to watch ‘The Shawshank Redemption’. Should he win the lottery, Ben would buy his mum a big house and would attend the 2003 World Cup if he had tickets to any sporting event.
