Sherwood Wolf Hunt RLFC have forged a link with Super League side Leeds Rhinos which makes them an Ambassador Club for the Midlands area and will see them developing the link and Rugby League in the area.

Chairman Richard Tempest-Mitchell is discussing with Leeds chief executive Gary Hetherington, how the clubs can work together in the North Notts area and beyond, taking Rugby League into schools and communities and using the power of the sport to raise aspiration, confidence and a healthy lifestyle.

In return Leeds will assist the Wolf Hunt develop the club and Rugby League in the area with coaching and advice. This will see more visits to Leeds Rhinos and the Rhinos coaching staff assisting in Wolf Hunt in North Notts.

Hetherington said “We are very impressed with the speed and success, at which the Sherwood Wolf Hunt have developed and want to utilise that to help them develop interest in their club and rugby league generally in the Midlands.

“As an official Ambassador Club in the Midlands area, we are sure we can benefit each other. In addition the RFL is doing a great job in the Midlands and we want to be part of that success with Sherwood Wolf Hunt and other community clubs and schools.”

Tempest-Mitchell is very pleased with the link made and said: “We met with Mr Hetherington some weeks ago and forged this link.

“We are now making this a formal partnership. We are now very keen to build the link to enhance rugby in the North Notts area using their expertise.

“Leeds Rugby is one of the biggest rugby brands in the world, in both codes, with the Yorkshire Carnegie and Leeds Rhinos.

“If we can benefit from this link and enhance sports provision in the area then we will be working hard with Mr Hetherington and his staff to get more people of all age groups involved in local rugby.”
