Danika Priim joined the Rhinos from Bradford Bulls ahead of their first season, fulfilling a lifetime ambition to represent her home town club.  She was vice captain in 2018 and led the team from the front until injury ended her season midway through 2018. Following surgery and a long rehab process she made her return in the Cup game against York.

The prop made a big impact in the opening rounds, making her debut against her former club and going on to start the next four games.  Her season cruelly came to a premature end against Castleford at Emerald Headingley, when she suffered an ACL injury.  She continued to play a key role in the squad from the sidelines and showed her determination to fight back from the injury.

The former Ralph Thoresby and Thornton Grammar School pupil played for Stanningley and Bradford Bulls before joining the Rhinos.  At the Bulls she was part of the squad who won the first Women’s Super League title.  She made her England debut in 2015 and represented the national squad in the 2016 and 2017 World Cup.

Priim is a classically trained ballet dancer and has also played Rugby Union for West Park and her University, whom she helped win the Grand Final at Twickenham.

She credits her oldest brother Karl, as having the biggest influence on her rugby as she used to watch rugby with him and he also taught her how to throw a ball.  Alongside her rugby, Priim is a full time teacher and she can be seen on a Rhinos men’s match day presenting and interviewing players as part of the club’s pre match entertainment in the South Stand at Emerald Headingley.
