Former skipper Ward leads tributes to friend John Atkinson

Former Leeds captain and coach David Ward led the tributes to his former team mate John Atkinson after the winger was inducted into the Leeds Rugby League Hall of Fame.

John passed away in late 2017 after a long battle with illness. Ward, a fellow member of the Hall of Fame, presented the Hall of Fame certificate and silver salver to John’s wife Carol at a special lunch at Emerald Headingley.
