Betfred Super League have announced that Mose Masoe has agreed to deliver the match ball at the 2020 Betfred Super League Grand Final on Friday 27 November.
The former Hull Kingston Rovers prop-forward suffered a career-ending spinal injury during pre-season which left him unable to walk.
However, in May, he took his first unaided steps after being told he would never walk again.
Masoe said: “It is a great honour for me and my family to be asked to deliver the match ball at the Betfred Super League Grand Final.
“The support of everyone in the Rugby League family has been truly humbling; the support and words of so many people has kept me inspired and motivated each day to keep making progress.
“I can’t think thank everyone enough. By walking out with the ball, I hope it can inspire others to continue to work hard and take tiny steps each day towards their goal.”
The 2020 Betfred Super League Grand Final will be live from the KCOM Stadium on Sky Sports Main Event from 7pm on Friday 27 November.
