A former Leeds Rhinos, Warrington Wolves and Wakefield Trinity fullback has been appointed as a business manager of a building company.

That fullback is Richie Mathers who has joined Leeds-based company ACS Stainless Steel Limited.

We have ambitious plans for the future as we seek to develop new products for our clients; Gareth, Kate and Richie’s expertise will be invaluable as we move forward into a new year.”
