Assistant coaches Chev Walker and Scott Grix will lead the team, who sit seventh in the table, in Friday’s home game against Leigh.

“Friday will be a special night for the club and we wanted to remove the ongoing coaching speculation and distraction,” he told the club website., external

“Celebrating Rob’s life, the great work done by the club and Kevin Sinfield for the MND community and playing well is the focus for Friday.

“I believe this team can still achieve great things and I am proud of the work that the coaching team have done to develop players, especially the next generations.”

The Rhinos are just two points off sixth-placed Catalans with 14 games played.
