Duo stick with North Wales

North Wales pair Elliott Jenkins and Dave Eccleston have signed new deals for the 2020 season.

Wales international half-back Jenkins linked up with the Crusaders midway through last season from Rochdale, playing four games for the club.

Jenkins said: “I’ve still got a lot to learn and if I want to be involved with Wales, I need to be playing consistently well.

“It’s a big thing for me as still a relatively young half-back to be playing on a regular basis.”

Winger Eccleston became a regular at North Wales in 2019, scoring six tries in 17 appearances.

Crusaders coach Anthony Murray commented: “Dave is another great addition to our squad for the 2020 season.

“As well as offering a threat on the edges, he always hits the line hard when carrying the ball out of yardage and makes a lot of ground going forward.”
