A RUGBY League star has named his newborn son Bane - in honour of the masked Batman baddie.

Jamie Jones-Buchanan, second row for Leeds Rhinos, and wife Emma followed their tradition of choosing far-out names - their three older sons Lore, six, Dacx, five, and Kurgan, three, were named after sci-fi characters.

Star Trek's Lore was born in 2335 and was the brother of android Data, while Dax took over people's bodies.

The Kurgan was a character in Highlander - a favourite film of Jamie, 31. The rugby player, from Bramley, Leeds, said he was often asked about the unusual names and added: "I've known Emma since school. We said if we had kids we'd call our first one Lore. I used to be a bit of a Trekkie.

"We are delighted with the new addition. I came up with the idea and my wife had the final say, as usual."
