Rhinos Winning start to the Season
Leeds Rhinos Wheelchair Rugby League recorded they biggest victory to date with an impressive 10-82 win in the WhRL Challenge Cup first round against Liverpool Saints away in Widnes. A fast start to scoring for Rhinos Captain James Simpson within 16 seconds of kickoff rattled the Saints, so much so Rhinos dominated the first half 0-54. Rhinos kept in front all the game with some impressive players, Saints managed to cross the line only twice finishing the game on the receiving end of a Rhinos victory.
Rhinos have to wait until late May to find out there next opponents are , meanwhile their first League fixture on 9th May away to Halifax RLFC and Hull FC at Calderdale college, then on the 24th May away to Medway Dragons and Gravesend Dynamite at Medway Park, Kent.
