Hunslet Hawks RLFC can today announce that outstanding full back Jimmy Watson has signed a 12 month contract extension for 2016 along with goalkicking half back Simon Brown.

Director of Rugby Darren Williams said โ€œWere delighted that both have agreed to stay and itโ€™s a big boost to the club in the lead up to our huge game at the inaugural Blackpool Bash with Doncaster.”

“Jimmy is now a firm favourite with our supporters who hold him close to their hearts. His infectious enthusiasm and passion for the game is immense, he wears his heart on his sleeve when pulling on the Myrtle & Flame shirt. His performances have improved this season and heโ€™s stepped up to the next level as his game continues to develop.”

“Simon joined us in the off season from Halifax and has been an instant hit, he has progressed with a run of games under his belt and his kicking game is arguably the best outside of Super League.”

The pair join Jack Lee & Andy Kain who are already contracted to the club for 2016.
