Leeds Rhinos announce 2018 squad numbers and kit

Leeds Rhinos have revealed their kit and squad numbers for the 2018 campaign.

New recruit Richie Myler has been handed the number seven jersey, vacated by the retirement of Rob Burrow and will become only the fourth player in the Super League era to wear the number seven shirt.

Joel Moon has been given the number six shirt after a fantastic 2017 season in the halves, formerly of Danny McGuire.

Ireland star Brad Singleton has become the club’s new number 10 with Adam Cuthbertson moving from 10 to eight while Keith Galloway has been handed the number 20 jersey as he recovers from his Achilles injury.

Liam Sutcliffe has moved up to number four while new signings Brad Dwyer and Nathaniel Peteru have been given the numbers 14 and 21 respectively while Anthony Mullally has moved from 20 to 16.

Academy graduates Jack Walker, Harry Newman and Alex Sutcliffe have been awarded the numbers 24, 26 and 31 respectively.

On the 2018 squad, head coach Brian McDermott said: “Naturally with Rob (Burrow) and Danny (McGuire) having left the squad it has enabled us to reward some other players for their development in recent years.

“Liam Sutcliffe has shown his potential as a centre and will continue to develop whilst Brad Singleton performed at a new level for him in 2017 and deserves his promotion. We expanded our first team squad last season to 30 players which was a major help to our preparations for games during the season and it is important that we have maintained that expanded group for this season.”

Leeds’ 2018 squad numbers: 1. Ashton Golding, 2. Tom Briscoe, 3. Kallum Watkins, 4. Liam Sutcliffe, 5. Ryan Hall, 6. Joel Moon, 7. Richie Myler, 8. Adam Cuthbertson, 9. Matt Parcell, 10.

  1. Looking at Leeds squad for next season they look pretty healthy and I wouldn’t back against them doing the double they were the most consistent team last season apart from cas but what they call the big four Wigan Warrington saints and Leeds who didn’t show up apart from Leeds was a disappointing season in my a pinyon witch made cas look a lot better than they actually was but they did get found out in the big one at the end when Leeds took them to school nothing fancy from the rhinos ? just very basic rugby ? well deserved Leeds from a warriors fan ?
