Leeds claimed an emotional 34-10 pre-season victory over Bradford in a joint fundraiser for Jamie Jones Buchanan and Rob Burrow.
In front of a sold-out Headingley, the Rhinos claimed victory in a game which featured a number of legends for both sides in the closing minutes.
The official attendance was 19,700, with over 3,000 Bradford fans making the short trip across Yorkshire, helping to raise over £30,000.

With five minutes remaining, Burrow entered the field to a standing ovation from all corners of the ground, the emotion clearly visible on his face.

The game itself was a hotly contested affair for the most parts, with Rhyse Martin crossing for an early double, before Ross Oakes replied on the half hour mark.
Liam Sutcliffe and Brad Dwyer scored for the hosts before the break, but Thomas Doyle reduced the deficit with a scampering effort moments after half-time.
Nevertheless, half-back’s Callum McLelland and Richie Myler crossed in the space of nine second half minutes to help the Rhinos ease clear in the closing stages.
