The Lord Mayor of Leeds, Councillor David Congreve said:



"It has been another memorable year for sport in our city, and it was fantastic to welcome the Hunslet Hawks to the Civic Hall in recognition of their brilliant triumph in the rugby league Championship One Grand Final.



"The Hawks showed great skill and nerves of steel to claim their Grand Final success, and I certainly wish them all the best for next season which we all hope will be just as successful."
