Full back Riley Lumb was first inspired to start playing rugby thanks to his dad, Gary, who previously played for Great Britain’s BARLA squad.
Playing for Townsville Tigers and Castleford Lock Lane, Riley has featured in four BARLA finals, winning two with Lock Lane. He has also competed in the National Schools Finals at Wembley in 2017,2018 and 2019 with his school, Castleford Academy. In 2020, he aims to improve his fitness and learn more about his position of full back.
Off the pitch, Riley would want tickets to watch the NFL if he could see any sporting event past or present and if he could play any other sport professionally, it would be football because he’s played it previously.
