This signed piece of Leeds Tykes memorabilia was purchased by Classic15 in October 2015 from an auction site. The previous owner (a long time Leeds Tykes / Yorkshire Carnegie supporter) had the shirt signed back in 1998 at the Headingley stadium, when Sailor was playing over the winter. It was then kept as a collector’s item and never worn. The reason for the sale was a general house clearance.
Wendell Sailor spent the Australian summer in England, playing rugby union for Leeds Tykes and scoring 15 tries in 13 games. Sailor also appeared in two of the Leeds Rhinos trial games, including the 'Festive Challenge' on Boxing Day in 1998. Playing Halifax, he had had a torrid time until the closing stages of the game when he inspired Leeds to grab a draw. England's Wigan club had tried to sign Sailor for a large amount, but he decided to stay with the Broncos.
