The RFL plays tribute to Harry Gration

The RFL sends its condolences to the family and friends of Harry Gration, who has died today at the age of 71.

Harry was best-known as a presenter of the BBC's Look North programme, but had a long relationship with Rugby League stretching back to his early days working for Radio Leeds in the 1970s, and involving a short stint with the RFL in the build-up to the successful 1995 World Cup.

He was then the regular presenter of The Super League Show, and remained a supporter of York City Knights.

Ralph Rimmer, the RFL's Chief Executive, said: "This news has come as a real shock. On behalf of Harry's former colleagues and many friends in the sport, our deepest condolences to his family.

"He was always great company, as well as a polished, professional and knowledgeable broadcaster, and a valued supporter of our sport."
