THE latest issue of South of the River – the magazine based on Hunslet RLFC and the amateur scene in the district – is now available.

Copies at £3 can be purchased from the club shop at the South Leeds Stadium (or ordered for £4 online including postage and packaging by clicking here).

The June 2019 issue looks at our two Friday night home fixtures with Keighley Cougars and Doncaster as Hunslet chase promotion from the Betfred League 1, and carries interviews with long-serving coaching staff member Mark Cass and powerhouse three-quarter Tom Ashton.

Head Coach Gary Thornton looks ahead with confidence to the rest of the campaign while Chairman Neil Hampshire puts forward his usual forthright and constructive observations on developments in Rugby League as a whole, and on how they affect Hunslet. And there are the usual entertaining contributions by columnists such as Pat Benatmane and Chris Westwood, while Steve Boothroyd provides an in-depth analysis of the schools game.

The great days of Hunslet’s glorious past are also vividly recalled and South of the River is packed with high quality images, in particular by chief photographer Paul Johnson.
