More players commit for 2017

We are delighted to announce that a host of current players have now also put pen to paper for 2017.

Below are the first number of outside backs to commit to the club.

Head Coach Tom Tsang commented on the new signings.

 Joel James

Joel James

Joel James

Joel joined the club half way through the year in 2015. As a young halfback he struggled for consistency, and as such didn’t play regularly in the first team. After a strong pre-season, however he was given opportunities in 2016 and eventually settled into a regular starting halfback position. He is a strong and willing defender, with a good natural skill level. He is a young lad, playing in a pressure position and so he is still very much developing – I can’t wait to work with him again in 2017 and help bring the best out of him.

Harry Chapman

Harry is a product of the Midlands RL and RFL regional academy. He only played a handful of games last season, but didn’t let us down when he was called upon. That little bit of experience should set him in good stead and I am hoping he will push the current first team regulars for their position. Equally at home in the halves or fullback, Harry is full of skill and he will learn when and how to make the most of a natural and undoubted talent.

 Jamahl Hunte

Jamahl Hunte

Jamma has been with us since our first season in 2015. On his day, he is as explosive and exciting as any winger in the League and can score tries from anywhere on the field, as he demonstrated last season on several occasions. He spent a siginifcant portion of last year on the sidelines following a concussion injury, but he is now fresh and I am looking forward to seeing how he can develop and improve. He will definitely be one to watch in 2017.
