Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos have confirmed 10 new additions for their academy side.

The youngsters include Hunslet's stand-off Stevie Ward and team-mate Josh Sunley, Oldham St Annes' Ryan Bradbury and Drighlington's Matt Blake.

England youth international Ben Finder and Wetherby Bulldogs team-mate Alex Foster are also included and join Hunslet Parkside's Marcus Elliot.

Whinmoor's James Duckworth, East Leeds' Gerry-Lee Pierre and Waterhead's Jack Cooke complete the new additions.

Rhinos head of youth development Barrie McDermott said: "Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Pete Clarkson and the other Under-16 coaches and staff have done a tremendous job with this group of players and each of the guys have earned their place in the Rhinos Academy.

"We have a proud record of developing young players, not just for Leeds but for a career in professional rugby."
