HATFIELD’S Leanne Riley upstaged ex-England international rugby star Austin Healey on national television last week, writes Sam Glanz.

The England U20 international, who plays for Saracens women, succeeded in throwing a rugby ball through a tyre in two attempts, with Healey taking three.

Riley’s Saracens team were guests on BT Sport’s new show ‘Rugby Tonight’, when former Leicester Tigers’ back Healey invited the best passer in the Saracens team to have a go at passing through the tyre.

After a wayward first attempt, Riley threw the ball through the centre of tyre to loud cheers from the audience and a high-five from Healey.
