Leeds MP Greg Mulholland has tabled a Parliamentary motion in recognition of the Rhinos’ Super League Grand Final triumph earlier this month.
The defending champions retained their crown, their fifth title in six years, witha 26-18 win over Warrington at Old Trafford.
Mulholland, who is MP for Headingley Stadium, the home of the Leeds Rhinos has commended the Rhinos in their victory, as well as praising all those involved with the Rhinos at Headingley. He goes on to wish them luck when they look to defend their World Club Champions crown against NRL champions, the Melbourne Storm.
He said: “I am delighted that the Leeds Rhinos were able to retain their Super League crown and that the trophy has made a return to Headingley Stadium once again. It was a thrilling game and a fantastic performance from both teams and I was honoured to be at Old Trafford to witness it. The Rhinos players the backroom staff and coach Brian McDermott deserve not only praise but recognition in Parliament for their achievements.
“It is an incredible achievement from the Rhinos to secure the Super League title for the fifth time in six seasons and is testament to all the hard work put in throughout the season by everyone at Headingley. I am sure that they will push onwards in the new season to add to this ever-growing tally of success and I wish them the best of luck against the mighty Melbourne Storm as the Rhinos seek to retain their World Club Champions crown.”
Earlier this season, Mulholland also tabled a motion in recognition of Leeds prop Jamie Peacock, following his retirement from international rugby league.
