The players

The players

The playing community are huge supporters of the UK Red Ride to Wembley because they recognise the important work the charity does in the field of player welfare.

We are delighted that so many former players are keen to don the lycra and put their bodies through a gruelling week-long ordeal in the saddle to help us raise the funds we need to assist their ex-team-mates.

This year’s riders include two Lance Todd Trophy winners, Denis Betts and Robbie Hunter-Paul, who were men of the match at Wembley in 1991 and 1996; Keith Senior, a Challenge Cup final winner with Sheffield Eagles in 1998; Chris Tuson, who collected a winners’ medal at Wembley with Wigan in 2013; and Nathan McAvoy, who lifted the Challenge Cup with Bradford Bulls in the 2000 Challenge Cup final played at Murrayfield.

We will be announcing details of more star riders in the weeks ahead – watch this space for more exciting news!
