Liam Sutcliffe recalled by Rhinos

Leeds stand-off Liam Sutcliffe has been recalled by the Rhinos following a short-term loan spell at Bradford Bulls.

The 19-year-old, who scored against Widnes yesterday, has impressed since arriving at the Provident Stadium in early March.

“Liam has been fantastic for us, he has provided another number for us – in a key position,” said Bulls coach Francis Cummins.

“In return, we have been able to give him some valuable game time in Super League. He has certainly impressed and has begun to work out his game. Having played on the front at Leeds, coming to Bradford to play on the back foot – at the moment – is not easy to do.

“I believe both parties have benefitted from his move and I would like to thank [Leeds coach] Brian McDermott and [chief executive] Gary Hetherington for their assistance. They were more than willing to help us and I must pay tribute to them both for their kindness.”
