Graham Turner's 2010 jousting season began where 2009 had left off, at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds. The Easter weekend saw four teams of three jousters competing for the Sword of Honour, with Graham and his horse Magic part of the Leodis team alongside Royal Armouries jousters, Andrew Brearley and Derry Wells.

The Royal Armouries team would take the title after a truly epic final against Destrier, scoring 43 and 41 respectively, out of a possible maximum of 45 points.
