SLIDESHOW - Chev Walker testimonial day

The first ever Hunslet State of Origin game took place at the South Leeds Stadium on Sunday with Hunslet Warriors taking on Hunslet Old Boys in a game that doubled up as a testimonial for Chev Walker.

The former Leeds Rhinos, Hull KR and Bradford Bulls players turned out for the club that helped develop him as a junior, the Hunslet Warriors, but ended on the losing side as they were edged out 14-12 in a competitively played match.

Before the Hunslet derby there was another game to entertain the crowd with many former Super League and Championship stars turning back the clock in a match between a Hunslet Hawks Legends side and a Rugby AM team.

Photographer Paul Butterfield was there to capture the scenes on a great day and here’s a slideshow of his pictures.
