LeeÆs partner Vicky gave birth to their second child (a brother for Sophie, 4) who weighed in at 8lb 4oz. They are yet to settle on a name for the new edition.Lee commented, "I was disappointed at the final score on Friday night, the guys put their bodies on the line and deserved a win. But, we have not come away from the JJB feeling down; we will focus on this weekendÆs game against Castleford and work on our game in training this week. It is an achievement to reach 500 at one club and I am aiming to double that during my career. IÆm on a high at the moment with the birth of my son, mother and baby are doing well."His total of 502 includes 37-drop goals and has come in 172 matches.
