"On behalf of everyone involved in Rugby League I would like to congratulate Bev and Jamie on their deserved recognition in the New Year's Honours List," said Lewis.
"Bev is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced people in the Rugby League world, someone who has worked tirelessly for many years to introduce young people to the sport and I can't think of anyone more deserving of an OBE.
