As most teams face the coming and going of different players, so does Leeds Rhinos this year.
Kevin Sinfield is known to be a legend of the team. This season will see the end of his active rugby playing career. During his playing career he has scored a total of 117 points and appeared for a total of sixteen times for Yorkshire Carnegie. Aged thirty five years of age, he switched codes when he joined the union side from the league side. This happened in November last year. He led the Rhinos in the treble win.
Aviva Premiership Rugby Football Union club the Leicester Tigers are planning a huge splash in the transfer market this summer as they look for a 'gold dust' signing either at centre or full back.

Rugby Football Union Championship club the Yorkshire Carnegie has announced that it has parted company with head coach Gary Mercer.
London Irish have moved up ahead against the Cardiff Blues. The first try was scored by Cory Allen but it was Andrew Fenby, the Irish Winger was there in the half of each and simultaneously Shane Geraghaty scored down the post. Irish were clearly showing improvement. Irish got the lead when Tom Homer got the penalty. It was Fenby all around who was putting Irish on the top by side tracking all.
A tough time for Leicester fans- the team is surely passing through a testing phase of late worsened by player injuries. While Parling has become a concern given his repeated concussions, Youngs (Tom) is down with critical shoulder injury.
Christopher John Ashton better known as Chris Ashton across the Rugby world has worn the English jersey and represented his country in two major occasions – the Rugby League and Rugby Union. He has represented leading clubs like Saracens and Wigan Warriors in the wing and full back positions. Ashton made his debut for England on 2006 against the French side.
England coach Stuart Lancaster has shown great courage in naming a relatively inexperienced squad ahead of their encounter with the French side in the upcoming fixture of the Six Nations rugby championship. The newest inclusion in the team includes Luther Burrell and Jack Nowell who have shown outstanding form in the domestic league. Lancaster has also axed Chris Ashton as the captain of the team leading to a lot of controversy but the coach remains convinced about his choice ahead of the game.
Rugby Football Union or RFU Championship side Leeds Carnegie have continued rebuilding their side ahead of the new season and beyond it having completed the signing of highly rated Scottish fly half Harry Leonard from Edinburgh Rugby.
Leonard, who is a former Under-20 international captain for the Scotland team, has been a regular in the first team of Edinburgh Rugby since he was 19 years old and has been a key player for the team in both the Pro 12 as well as the Heineken Cup, where he starred for the team during their win against Munster this season.
