Leeds prop Kylie Leuluai, 36, has confirmed he will remain a Rhino for the 2015 season as he looks to continue his career at the very top of the game.
In his eight season with the Rhinos, Leuluai has made more metres per carry than any other forward at the club with an average gain of 8.12m per carry and is one of only five props in Super League who have made over eight metres per carry this season.
I am enjoying playing the game and I am not ready to finish yet. I enjoy being with the boys and being associated with the club and that was important for me however the decision was always going to be performance related, especially in my position and what I can do for the team. There are certain levels and requirements that are required of you in any team, but especially with this group of players, and, like any job, you have to be able to meet those requirements.
Leuluai is now just one appearance short of equally the legendary Arthur Clues in the all time list of overseas players for the club. Clues made 236 appearances for Leeds between 1947 and 1954 whilst only Australians Frank O’Rourke, Dinny Campbell and Eric Harris are above Leuluai and Clues in the all time list.
Cycling legend Brian Robinson has joined Twitter.
The 83-year-old signed up on Wednesday and his first tweet was to thank well-wishers for support after his crash:
All new to this game, but I gotta say thanks to everyone who sent cards and good wishes, I am mending pretty good now just short on patience
The cycling pioneer Brian Robinson, who helped bring the Tour de France to Yorkshire, is back home from hospital after an accident while out riding his bike.
Brian, 83, was the first Briton to win a stage of the Tour in the fifties.
He is battered and bruised, but overwhelmed by good wishes from around the world and already planning his return to the saddle.
Jon Hill went to meet him:
ITV Calendar's resident Tour de France expert and professional cyclist Dean Downing is to compete in his final race tonight.
The Sheffield Grand Prix will be the Rotherham-born rider's last event.
It is a year to the day since sixteen year old Ryan Smith from Chapel St Leonards was knocked off his bike on his way to work. His father, Mark, was told that it was unlikely he would survive. But one year on Ryan is making remarkable progress and though Mark has not been able to make cycle helmets compulsary here in the UK, he has welcomed news that they have just become a legal requirement for children in Jersey. Adam Fowler looks back over Ryan's year.
Ryan's father Mark and Luke Griggs from the charity Headway came into Calendar's studio to talk about Jersey's decision to make it compulsory for children to wear cycle helmets.
The father of a Lincolnshire cyclist left brain-damaged after hit by van has welcomed news that it is now compulsory for all under 14's to wear helmets when cycling in Jersey. Ryan Smith did not have one on when he was involved in the accident a year ago today. His dad wants the same law introduced here.
Brian Robinson says he hopes to be back on his bike as soon as possible and may even wait until Tour de France rider Mark Cavendish can join him.
The ProTeam Omega Pharma-Quick Step rider suffered a broken collarbone as he crashed out of the Tour de France on the Stage One sprint into Harrogate where his mother lives.
The 83-year-old can claim bragging rights though having suffered a broken collarbone, six broken ribs and a punctured lung.
He says he might wait until Cavendish is back in the saddle so he can join him on the road to recovery:
Yorkshire's very own Tour de France legend Brian Robinson remains in hospital after a crash near his home yesterday.
His son in law, Martyn Bolt, told ITV Calendar that the 83-year-old had suffered a broken collarbone, six broken ribs and a punctured lung in the collision.
