Stephens can’t wait to face Bradford in derby clash


Leeds Rhinos academy winger Iwan Stephens is encouraging fans to get behind Rob Burrow’s side this Saturday as they travel to face Bradford Bulls Academy. Stephens has played in the last seven matches for Rob Burrow, starting on the wing or at full back.

He is currently the second highest points scorer this season, with five tries and four goals, and is confident the Academy can turn last weeks loss against City of Hull around when they face Bradford, who currently rank ninth in the league.

The match will be a curtain raiser for the two sides’ Challenge Cup round six clash at Odsal, which kicks off at 2:30pm.
