Director of Rugby Darren Williams said “Mufaro really kicked on in 2016 as he cemented his place in the team and had a consistent year.

“His performances were noted by rival clubs but he is settled here at South Leeds and with the close knit group we have on board for 2017 if was always his preferred option to stay.
