Sky Sports to broadcast JJB testimonial

Sky Sports have announced they are going to broadcast Sunday’s match between Leeds Rhinos and Bradford Bulls.

The match is a joint fundraiser for Jamie Jones-Buchanan’s testimonial, and for Rob Burrow after his recent MND diagnosis.

Outside Broadcast vehicles have been donated by Telegenic. Meanwhile, sound, technical, replay, production and presentation staff have all donated their services for the day.

Rhinos Director of Rugby Kevin Sinfield told the club website: “I would like to say a massive thank you to Sky Sports for their support ahead of Sunday’s game.  In particular Neville Smith, who has pulled together all the aspects to make this possible.

“I know there are a lot of Rugby League fans who would want to be there but are unable due to other commitments. This will allow them to be part of an unforgettable occasion.”

Sky Sports Executive Director Steve Smith added: “Fixtures between Leeds Rhinos and Bradford Bulls are always a highlight in the Rugby League calendar.

“We’re delighted to be supporting Rob Burrow, as well as celebrating a glittering career for Jamie Jones-Buchanan.”
