Senior aircraftman Scott Stevenson will be remembered at all levels of rugby league this weekend.
The 25-year-old recently lost his life after being injured while playing for the Royal Air Force against the Army in a rugby league match.
A minute’s silence will be observed before Thursday’s Super League play-off between Warrington and Castleford at the Halliwell Jones Stadium – and again before Saturday’s Championship play-off between York, where Stevenson played at Under-18s level, and Featherstone.
There will be further tributes at the Yorkshire Men’s League Finals Day at the LD Nutrition Stadium in Featherstone on Saturday, and all other community fixtures across the weekend, including the Wheelchair Super League Grand Final in Kent.
The UK Armed Forces Rugby League issued a statement on Wednesday to confirm that the final round of matches in the Inter-Services competition between the RAF and the Royal Navy will go ahead in Featherstone on Friday, having considered the wishes of Scott’s family, and the players and staff of the RAF and Royal Navy.
