Riley and Newton make GB Pioneers squad

Representative Rugby League is in the club’s nature. This continues again with Winger, John Riley and Hooker, Ronan Newton making it on 2018 tour of Turkey with Great Britain Pioneers.

Pioneers are a handpicked squad made from University students that visit countries, to expand the game of Rugby League. Many successful tours include Greece, Poland and Hungary.

Riley was pinnacle in the 2nd Teams title win back in the 2016/17 season, following up with impressive performances last season, meriting him with a call up. His first representative appearance after only started playing when he joined the university.

Newton, last years 1st Team Vice-Captain was a key figure in last seasons Premier North push as well as helping the 2nd Team on many an occasion.

We wish both lads, as well as the rest of GB Pioneers Squad luck on their tour.
