Rhinos recall Sutcliffe


31st March 2014

Leeds Rhinos have recalled stand-off Liam Sutcliffe from his loan spell at First Utility Super League neighbours Bradford Bulls.

The 19-year-old joined the Bulls at the start of March on an initial one-month deal after Bradford lost Lee Gaskell with a knee injury and he has appeared in their last four matches.

"Liam has been fantastic for us," said Bradford coach Francis Cummins. "He has provided another number for us - in a key position.

"In return, we have been able to give him some valuable game time in Super League.

"I believe both parties have benefited 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."
