Dewsbury Moor players have got inked in tribute to former team-mate Archie Bruce.

Bruce passed away last weekend just hours after making his debut for Batley in Toulouse.

The 20-year-old died of asphyxiation, which is being deprived of or lacking oxygen.

Tattooist Simon Field is donating £5 from every tattoo to the Rugby Football League Benevolent Fund that has been set up in memory of Bruce.

The tattoo includes a short message which in Latin translates as “Fly high, friend”.
