Dawn Farr has been a lifelong fan of the Leeds Rhinos. And she certainly knows how to go the extra mile to show her support for the club.

He round trip will be over 3,000 miles for today’s match as she travels from Portugal to make sure she doesn’t miss the action..


She said: “I was at the farewell party for Kevin Sinfield and Jamie Peacock at Elland Road.

“The two guys are just legendary, both at the Rhinos and in the game in general. Their departure will be a massive loss for the team. I think it is fair to say that every Rhinos fan is devastated that they are leaving. I think it is going to be a really close game.

“On one hand, it’d be good if the Rhinos can do the treble this season, but usually after just winning the Challenge Cup, it is a real big ask for a team to win anything else.”
