Debut: Vs Huddersfield Giants (A) 02/08/2020
Challenge Cup: Winner 2020
Leeds Rhinos signed England Knights hooker Kruise Leeming after agreeing a deal with Betfred Super League rivals Huddersfield Giants.
Leeming, who featured for the Knights at Emerald Headingley in their win over Jamaica in 2019, made 112 appearances for the Giants since breaking through as a teenager from the club’s academy to make his debut in 2013. He has agreed a two year contract with the Rhinos.
Originally from Swaziland, he moved to Halifax when he was three and played his junior rugby at Siddal before signing professionally with Huddersfield.
Kruise missed the start of his first season at the Rhinos due to injury but made his debut after the coronavirus lockdown, coming off the bench in the Golden Point win over his former club, Huddersfield on 2nd August 2020.
