Leeds Rhinos players and backrrom staff featured heavily in the Championship and also in the build up with trials and training held at Morley Leisure Centre, Leeds.

Andrew Gardner Team Manager for both Rhinos and England said " it was a spectical to watch the New players take on the mantel of representing the country whilst also looking for a place in the England Elite test match team."

Martyn Gill Head Coach Rhinos/England - "We were delighted to run out overall winners of 4 Nations. It was a proud moment for everyone concerned, especially for a special group of players, seven of which were making their international debuts. Our thanks goes to everyone who supported us, all the backroom support staff and of course the event organisors for creating a special occasion for everyone that took part"

"England stared the game with the ball and it took them just three minutes to get on the scoreboard as Mike Knight and Declan Roberts and they linked well before passing ball out to Jodie Boyd-Ward on the wing and she did just about enough to hold off Harry Jones to score the first try of the match.

Robert McLeod then scored his first try of the match as Wales were caught napping in defence and McLeod got the ball from James Simpson and he did just about enough to get the ball over the try line before getting tackled to score for England.

England got their third try of the match after the Welsh defence were again caught napping and Mike Knight and Robert McLeod gave to good passes before McLeod passed the ball out wide to Jodie Boyd-Ward who simply held off her defender and got the ball over the try line to score her second try of the match.

Boyd-Ward completed her hat trick as she got the ball on right side of the pitch and he held off two welsh defenders before cross the try line as England opened up an early twenty point gap to Wales."   Read More

After this I decided I wanted to get involved within wheelchair basketball and completed my Grade 1. I was instantly hooked on the sport! over the past few years I have built my own team in Bradford, assistant coached for England North at the 2013 school games where we won Gold! And most recently been appointed head coach of England North for 2014 school games and also Head coach for the Yorkshire regional performance centre. I am looking forward to Head coaching the Spiders in Division 1 and helping to build on the ambition and passion at the Spiders! We have big plans and hope you will join us on our journey!

Now I've got an opportunity to use all these coaching skill in wheelchair basketball. I was impressed with the facility at Morley.

Spider - Y have been a crucial part of me getting involved with wheelchair basketball. I started playing 2 years ago
after I was involved in a car crash and became injured.

I was warmly welcomed at the club and always encouraged to keep trying with the sport.
Thanks to this continued support from Spider Y and the good coaching provided I was scouted by someone from the GB programme and was asked to be part of their set up and attend training camps etc.

I recently was selected to compete in the European Championship in Frankfurt for GB where we got a Bronze Medal.


It is thanks to Spider Y that I didn't just give up when I was finding getting to grips with basketball hard
