Rugby fan enjoys fish & chips with his favourite player



The Wetherby Whaler in Guiseley, Yorkshire, gave a keen rugby league fan a meal he won’t forget - a fish and chips supper with his favourite Leeds Rhinos player.


Martin Hopwood from Huddersfield was invited to enjoy a meal with Rhinos legend Rob Burrow after winning a competition on the Wetherby Whaler website.

Martin said: “I was over the moon when I found out I’d won. It’s a great prize for a rugby fan. Not only did I get to meet a player and give him a grilling, but I got to do so in a fantastic environment with proper Yorkshire food.”

He adds: “Rob’s one of my favourite players and it’s been a great chance to meet him and talk about the game, and life in general.”

Martin, who has followed the team for more than 20 years, was joined by wife Helen and his four year-old son, Dominic.

Phillip Murphy, director of the Wetherby Whaler, said: “It’s brilliant to be able to give such a long serving fan of the club a prize like this. We’re very involved in sport at a professional and grassroots level across Yorkshire, so it’s fantastic to be able to bring it all together like this.

“Leeds Rhinos go to great efforts to make sure their atmosphere is family-friendly and to be involved in the local community. This is a spirit we at Wetherby Whaler share whole heartedly and it’s always a pleasure to work with the team there.

“Rob Burrow was fantastic, and visited us just off the back of completing the milestone of 500 career games – a great achievement in a tough sport.”
