Leeds make donation to Masoe

Leeds Rhinos have announced they have donated £20,000 towards Mose Masoe and his family, as a result of ticket sales.

The Rhinos announced that 25-per-cent of ticket sales from their Super League clash against the Rovers would go to the Rugby League Benevolent Fund’s support of the Samoan forward.

As well as this, Leeds held a collection, and received further donations from inside of the club. That includes Rob Burrow, who insisted on making a donation from the proceeds of his Gala Dinner back in February.

Masoe picked up the injury in a freak accident during a pre-season friendly at Wakefield Trinity in January. He has since been able to start walking again with the aid of a frame.

Leeds CEO Gary Hetherington told the club website: “In these unprecedented times for the country, it’s important that we don’t forget the battles that Mose Masoe and Rob Burrow were already facing.

“As we said before Hull KR came to Emerald Headingley in February, we wanted to give our supporters and staff the chance to show their support to Mose – and now we want to thank them for such a generous response.

“It was a typically generous gesture also from Rob Burrow to think of Mose at the Gala Dinner that was arranged to support his own family.

“That means we are able to make a substantial donation to the Benevolent Fund, who do such a great job for the game under the leadership of Steve Ball. And it goes without saying that we also send our very best wishes to Mose and his family.”
