Hunslet Hawks can today announce that Leeds Rhinos duo Luke Briscoe and James Duckworth have signed for the club for the 2015 season.
Both players are no strangers to the Hunslet club, having both featured in our Kingstone Press One Playoff charge, cumulating in our Grand Final win at Headingley Carnegie back in October last year.
James a powerful winger scored three tries in seven appearances for the Hawks last term with Back Rower Luke making four starts and three appearances of the bench scoring one try.
Luke and James also appeared for the Hawks on dual registration against Salford Red Devils in last month’s friendly fixture.
Director of Rugby Darren Williams commented “I’m delighted to add James & Luke to our 2015 squad adding extra competition to our outside backs. Both were popular additions in our play off campaign towards the end of 2014 and fitted in well with the rest of the squad. James is a powerful finisher who is great at getting out of yardage and Luke is deceptively strong and has added utility value.”
Both players will go straight into contention for our opening fixture of 2015 against Featherstone Rovers on Monday evening at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium, Wakefield.
