Hunslet have signed England Universities star and former Leeds Rhino academy man Iwan Orr for the 2024 season.

Orr, who plays half-back or full-back completed a BA (Hons) in Sport Business Management whilst playing for the England Universities team in the Four nations and Presidents cup where they were victorious and unbeaten in both competitions.

Having been coached by Jamie Jones-Buchanan at Leeds Beckett, Orr has a good rugby background (his father being former Castleford half-back Danny Orr).

Hunslet Head Coach Dean Muir says “Iwan has been on a number of clubs radar. He is a player with talent and a great attitude to learning and becoming a better player. He is someone I’m excited to work with”

Playing at junior level Orr played with Joe and Olly Burton who were with the Parksiders last season. He was also coached by former assistant Coach Danny Burton which may have had some sway in him coming to the South Leeds Stadium.
