Mose Masoe will deliver the match ball at the Super League Grand Final on Friday, November 27.
The Hull KR co-captain suffered a career-ending spinal injury during a pre-season friendly earlier this year which left him unable to walk.
Masoe has been an inspiration throughout his recovery period and in May, he took his first unaided steps after being told he would never walk again.
Masoe said: “It is a great honour for me and my family to be asked to deliver the match ball at the Betfred Super Grand Final.
“The support of everyone in the rugby league family has been truly humbling; the support and words of so many people has kept me inspired and motivated each day to keep making progress.
“I can’t thank everyone enough.
“By walking out with the ball I hope it can inspire others to continue to work hard, and take tiny steps each day towards their goal.”
