About this Event

I have been a professional rugby league player for over 20 years having signed for Leeds Rhinos back in 1997 form my junior club, Stanningley ARLFC. 2019 will be the final season.

To date, I have played over 400 games for the Leeds Rhinos; winning 8 Super league Grand Finals, 2 challenge cups, 3 league leaders and 3 world club challenges.  I have also represented both England and Great Britain and have been heavily involved with many local charities such as the Leeds Rhinos Foundation and “The Works Skate Park”.

I have been very happily married to my wife Emma for 10 years and we have four wonderful boys - Lore, Dacx, Kurgan and Bane.   Despite all my sporting success my family remains my life’s biggest gratification and greatest blessing.

I believe that life is a narrative, human beings are the only creatures on the planet that share stories.  The human race is blessed with the ability to abstract, dream and live our lives on a narrative continuum.  There is great utility in sharing stories, whether it be to educate, entertain or inspire those around us and I have been very fortunate to do that on the vehicle of sport.

Over the last 10 years I have written column’s in various rugby league magazines and sporting papers.  I co-founded what is now a TV production company called “Rugby-AM”, which aims to showcase the personalities in rugby league. 

In 2017 I played a part in the production of the Leeds Rhinos film “As Good as it Gets” and have recently performed in a community theatre play called “Playing the Joker” with the Red Ladder theatre company.

Finally, and in many ways most importantly, I am a Christian and my faith in Christ underpins every thought and decision in my life.
