Leeds Rhinos release heritage shirt

Leeds Rhinos have unveiled a new heritage shirt to mark the 130 years since the opening of Headingley Stadium.

The iconic ground first staged rugby league in September 1890 when Leeds played Manningham, who would later switch codes to become Bradford City Association Football Club.

It has since gone on to host well over 1,000 games, including crucial semi-finals, World Club Challenges and international tests.

The jersey features the traditional Leeds Rugby crest in place of the modern ‘Rhinos’ one, and is primarily blue with amber rings and a white collar.

It also includes the names of the 1,456 players who have played for the club since the formation of the Northern Union in 1895.

It will be worn during a Super League game once the season resumes after the Covid-19 lockdown and is available for fans to buy now via the Rhinos’ online shop.

It costs £46.99 for adults and £36.99 for children and toddlers.
