Leeds Rhinos have revealed a new look shirt to mark the 130th anniversary of the opening of Headingley Stadium - and the Yorkshire Evening Post has a replica to give away in our special competition.

The first rugby game at the stadium was on September 20, 1890, when Leeds beat Manningham, who later switched codes to become Bradford City AFC.

The blue and amber commemorative jersey, which revives the Leeds Rugby League crest and includes a white collar, will be worn in a match when Betfred Super League resumes after Covid-19.

It features the names of all 1,456 men who have played for the club since the Northern Union began in 1895. The front of the shirt includes the Leeds Building Society logo along with those of associate partners Global and Berrys and official kit suppliers ISC. The sleeves have the branding of club partners Southerns along with the Betfred Super League logo. Three more partners are on the back, with Quest joined by LSS Waste Management and Napa.
