This seems like a big deal.

With the international break going on, a lot of Leeds fans will be paying attention to Rugby Super League final where the Leeds Rhinos will take on the Castleford Tigers. I’ll be honest, I have no idea what to think about any of this. It seems like most Leeds United fans are Leeds Rhino fans, but some are Castleford fans? Anyway, I don’t have a rooting interest in it, but Jack Robshaw is a Castleford fan, so maybe I’ll root for them. Anyway, Leeds fans, tell me in the comments who I should root for.

On to the links.
