Declan Jenkinson has been part of the Leeds Rhinos LDSL team since November 2018.

He was first approached by staff at Leeds Rhinos Foundation at a Try Club session to see if he was interested in playing for the LDSL side, and as the current co-captain of the team he has played at multiple LDSL festivals as well as at Anfield Stadium and St James Park as part of the Magic Weekend events over the last five years. In 2021, he was a Finalist in the Sport Leeds Disability Sportsman of the Year category.

LDSL has changed Declan’s life outside of Leeds Rhinos as he works for the NHS. He feels more confident in himself and others.
