BBC Sport - Stevie Ward: Leeds Rhinos back-rower hopes 'dark' times can make him stronger
'Dark times can make you stronger'
- From the section Rugby League
Stevie Ward's Leeds career was on an upward curve when he crossed to give the Rhinos the lead against Huddersfield in the final game of the Super League Super 8s last season.
However that same night a knee injury brought his world crashing down and cost him a Grand Final appearance when the Headingley club went on to win the title.
Here he tells BBC Super League Show about that moment, the impact it had on him going forward, the long road to recovery and hopefully playing again this season.
You can see the full piece with Stevie Ward on the BBC Super League Show, Monday, 4 July on BBC One in the north of England at 23:45 BST, on BBC Two nationwide at 00:35 BST Wednesday, 6 July or on the BBC iPlayer all week.
