Rhinos Chief Seeking World Club Title


Gary Hetherington, the Leeds Rhions chief executive, has stressed just how much a victory in the World Club Challenge against the Melbourne Storm would mean to the club.

Hetherington even goes as far to say it would be "one of the greatest in the clubs history" to beat Melbourne is one thing, to beat them in their own backyard would be nothing short of incredible for everyone involved.

2012 was the last time the Rhinos were named World Club Champions,this was a 26 points to 12 victory over the Manly Sea Eagles. Melbourne have faced a similar absence from the same title, 2013 was their last World Club Challenge title, this was an 18-14 victory over the Rhinos themselves.

The Rhinos chief executive acknowledged that his side are the rank outsiders, in an interview with Sky Sports News he said "it will be the ultimate achievement to win the World Club Challenge in Melbourne against the Storm, who are the best NRL team i have ever seen. Both clubs have been the dominant forces in their respective competitions over the last two decades and we are under no illusions the size of the task that lies ahead"

The game itself will take place on Friday the 16th of February at AAMI Park, whatever the outcome it's sure to be a great spectacle.
