Woodhouse Lane leads to Headingly, home of Leeds Rhinos (rugby league) and Leeds Carnegie (rugby union) teams, along with Yorkshire County Cricket Club. It was at Headingly, in 1932, that the Leeds-born spinner Hedley Verity took 10 wickets for 10 runs – still the best bowling analysis in first-class cricket. Verity played in 40 test matches, taking 100 wickets in a shorter time than any other English bowler. He died in 1943 from his wounds, in a prisoner of war camp in Italy.
