Leeds Rhinos legends attend exciting event as rugby league side could be in line for award

The Sports Personality of the Year (SPOTY) awards are being hosted tonight with men and women from a range of sports including both amateur and professional taking to the stage to be recognised for their brilliant achievements and one Super League side hinted that some representatives of their club could be in attendance.

That was Leeds Rhinos have tweeted that fans should watch the event, which is being broadcast from 18:45 till 21:00 on BBC One, and to look out for some “familiar faces”.

Following this, the club have shared some brilliant pictures of Leeds Rhinos legend Rob Burrow and his family at the event and have been joined by his former skipper and good friend Kevin Sinfield.

Meanwhile, at the recent World Cup England won the wheelchair final in dramatic fashion and one of the key players in that victory was captain Tom Halliwell who represents the Leeds Rhinos wheelchair team domestically.

He surged through to scoring the winning try whilst Nathan Collins of Leeds also added points in the game. Defeating France to secure the trophy was a huge achievement and saw a World Record crowd of over 4,500 in attendance at Manchester Central with the sport becoming a viral sensation.

Jack Brown of Halifax Panthers was brilliant and showed his speed as he tore through the lines and broke free on numerous occasions to record a try total of 17.

With the England team already being crowned as the Sports Journalists Associations’ winners of the Bill McGowran trophy for exceptional achievement in para-sports could they add another award?

They are indeed in attendance tonight:
