Kevin Sinfield: The Inside Story documentary will premiere tonight at 7pm on the Leeds Rhinos YouTube account.

Today is the first anniversary of Sinfield completing his 7 in 7 Challenge. To mark the occasion, the club will be premiering their latest film that shows Sinfield’s most recent fundraising challenge when he ran 101 miles in 24 hours.

He has now raised more than £5million inside 12 months from his two challenges. Supporters can still donate to Sinfield’s Extra Mile Challenge.

Gale told Hull Daily Mail: “I think the whole squad we’ve got – Josh Griffin, you wouldn’t know he’s had an Achilles rupture because he’s trained the house down. The young lads have been great as well.”
