Hunslet Hawks centre Jimmy Watson is the Kingstone Press Championship 1 Player of the Week.


Jimmy Watson earned praise from Hawks coach Barry Eaton after making a major contribution to his side’s 60-4 win over London Skolars.


Eaton said: “Jimmy was really good against Oxford last week, and he was great again when we played London.


“His push support has been good, he’s not making any errors and he’s slotted in defensively straight away.


“He’s not normally a centre, but he’s been doing a great job over the last couple of weeks.”


The Hawks also had 4 players named in the Kingstone Press Championship 1 Team of the Week. Congratulations to Jimmy Watson, hat-trick hero Jamaine Akaidere, Danny Grimshaw & Liam Mackay.
