More than 1,000 people have turned out for the funeral of Keighley Cougars player Danny Jones.

The 29-year-old father-of-two died after suffering a cardiac arrest during a game at London Skolars earlier this month.

The half-back played 153 games for Keighley.

A fund set up by the Cougars to raise money for his family has received thousands of pounds in donations.

His funeral was held at St Mary's Church in Halifax.

Jones' widow Lizzie urged people to attend in their rugby jerseys.
