Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

Just watching LUFC v MUFC and heard the crowd singing “Marching on Together”.

only recall hearing if from Rhino fans before. Did it originate at the rugby or the soccer?

The first verse is:

Here we go with Leeds United,
We're gonna give the boys a hand,
Stand up and sing for Leeds united,
They are the greatest in the land.

Rhinos obviously drop that bit when they play/chant it.

It's Leeds united's song, their fans started singing it at Headingley when the football club was ###### and the rugby team were doing well and the fans went there instead, now the football is doing ok again they go back to the football and sing it there again.

They've always sung it at Elland Road , despite what sort of form LUFC have been in .

I know they have but until Leeds United were in the 3rd Division i'd never heard it played or even sung at Headingley - coincidence? i think not.

Believe me , Leeds RL fans sang it in the early to mid 1990s , probably even before .

As i said i've never heard it till about 10 years ago, i 1st went to Headingley in 1989, even my mate who is a season ticket holder at ER once said "what the f*** are they singing that for?"

I actually like it too and think its great when clubs have their own individual songs. It all helps for the atmosphere. Yes it may have come from Football but as a Rugby fan I firmly think of Leeds RL when I hear it now.

Totally agree, maybe Rhinos should get one.

Yes this is definitely the case. It was being sung by Leeds fans at Headingley in the 80s and 90s so it's nothing new.

Leeds started playing it at the start of games sometime in the early or mid 2000s.

Probably when the rights were up for grabs in the bonfire of the vanities

I distinctly remember it being sung in the late 90s when Leeds United were going great guns and were in the Champions League etc. That was before their financial troubles so I dont think it fits the Football fans starting to watch Leeds Rhinos and singing it narrative.
