Ward almost quit

Leeds forward Stevie Ward says he had doubts over whether he would be able to carry on playing before the Rhinos won the Grand Final.

The 23-year-old has had a tough time on the injury front throughout his career, when he was injured in the 2012 Grand Final and then missed out in 2015 with a knee injury.

It looked as though he would suffer more heartbreak after he dislocated his shoulder in the semi-final win over Hull FC, and at that point he doubted whether he had it in him to fight back from another injury.

Thankfully for the player and the Rhinos, he made a miraculous recovery and was able to play his part in the 24-6 victory over Castleford at Old Trafford.

"There were moments where I was giving in and moving on," he said. "I didn't think I could do another process, coming back from injury and missing another final.

"To have won is surreal. It's a bit of a shock and the top feels so much better from the bottom."
