This fantastic festival, which sees teams competing from across Leeds, Yorkshire and the rest of the country, is a unique opportunity for players to grace the same pitch as the Leeds Rhinos and Yorkshire Carnegie. The event is organised by Leeds City Council in partnership with the Leeds Rugby Foundation, the Rugby Football Union and other key rugby providers and clubs across the area.

This year Leeds Rhino’s star and England International Carl Ablett was on hand to give all participants medals and certificates, along with information about where they can carry on playing rugby and other sports after the day.
