It is events like this that make the Leeds Rugby Foundation's (LRF) aims that little bit more worthwhile. The LRF's Rugby League Development Plan for Leeds aims to allow youngsters to play rugby league from the youngest of ages at their local community clubs and to have the opportunity to watch a Leeds or Hunslet game live.
At the LRF we value community clubs massively with a huge number of Rhinos' players having progressed through their local community clubs to make it to the professional game. The support that community clubs give to players and the opportunities that are produced through them, is pivotal to young players' enjoyment and progression through the game.
We aim to help support community clubs and make it a common goal to get young people playing and, most importantly, enjoying the sport of rugby league within their community.
Sam Horner commented: "Let's not forget how important Community Clubs are to Rugby League as all most professional players start off in this environment before going on to succeed at the top level."
