Hunslet have completed the double signing of Luke Stenchion from York and Matthew Cook from Wakefield.
Stenchion, 27, has played at Championship level for Dewsbury, Batley, Oldham and York, while 19-year-old centre Cook has come through the academy system at the Wildcats.
Director of Rugby Darren Williams said: "Luke will be a good addition to our forward pack for 2014, although not the biggest in stature, he does all the little things right and has experience of playing at Championship 1 level with Oldham Roughyeds where he probably played his best rugby, he will create competition in the front row and gives us some good options. He knows alot of the boys already at the club and should fit in really well.”
"We have seen some footage of Matt in action and Stuart Dickens recommended him to the club, he possesses a good step and fend and looks strong defensively, he wanted an opportunity to progress his career and were happy to provide him with the platform."
Half-back Danny Ansell has also signed a new one-year deal with the Hawks.
Elliot Whitehead says the rigours of NRL pre-season have been hard to adjust to but the Canberra forward is slowly getting used to it.
