The former Morley Saint began playing PDRL after one his good friends recommended he should join the team, as it would be a good way for him to get back into playing rugby league following his brain injury.

He has many rugby memories which include seeing Leeds Rhinos winning the Challenge Cup final in 2014 and them also going onto win the League Leaders shield at Huddersfield Giants the following year thanks to Ryan Hall’s dramatic last minute try.

Nicknamed ‘Billy the Bulldog’, the forward says his favourite memory of playing in the Rhinos PDRL team was stepping out on the hallowed Anfield turf for the PDRL half time showcase against Warrington Wolves during Dacia Magic Weekend.
