Hunslet have confirmed that Ayden Faal has signed a one-year deal to play for the club in 2016.
Faal, 28, spent 2015 at Batley Bulldogs, and has previously played for the Hawks.
“Signing Ayden is testimony that we are creating the right environment at the club when players are happy to return,” said Hunslet director of rugby Darren Williams.
“He’s had his injury problems and is just recovering from a shoulder reconstruction but his rehabilitation is ahead of schedule and he’s looking forward to showing us what we all know he can do.
“He is a major signing for the club as we prepare for life in Championship 1 and he will provide us with some strike out wide.”
