Lions Association announces donation

The Rugby League Lions Association is making a £1,000 donation to the family of Mose Masoe.

The money was raised by the Lions at their annual reunion luncheon last month.

Masoe picked up a serious spinal injury playing for Hull KR in a pre-season match in January.

The former prop, 30, is currently being treated in Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield. He hopes to be able to move out of bed into a wheelchair in the next few weeks.

The former Samoan International is facing a lengthy period of intensive rehabilitation at the dedicated spinal unit. He and his family are being supported by the RL Benevolent Fund.

John Ledger, Secretary of the Association, said: “We hope this small donation will help Mose and his family at what is clearly a very traumatic time for them.

“Our annual luncheon was a huge success attended by some of the greatest players ever to play Rugby League and they feel privileged to be able to help another player in his hour of need.”
