Leeds stand by jailed rugby league

English rugby league club Leeds Rhinos have told jailed players Ryan Bailey and Chev Walker they will not be sacked and can resume their careers once they've completed their sentences.

Great Britain squad member Bailey was given nine months detention in a young offenders centre this week while Walker was jailed for 18 months.

A third player, Rochdale Hornet Paul Owen, was jailed for 15 months for his part in a fight which broke out outside a Leeds nightclub in July last year.
