Hayden Freeman commits to Coventry

Prolific winger Hayden Freeman has signed up with Coventry for the 2019 season.

The winger, who can also play at centre, has been Coventry’s top try-scorer over the last two seasons, crossing 32 times in 55 games.

Freeman will play his fourth season with the Bears in 2019.

Bears’ coach Tom Tsang commented: “Hayden has been our top try-scorer over the last two seasons and has really developed into a fantastic League 1 winger.

“He has good line speed and carries very well into contact. Towards the end of the 2018 season, Hayden even spent some time in the centre position, adding another string to his bow.

“We still see him as a great winger first and foremost, but will work with him to develop other areas of his game to make him more versatile and increase his attacking threat further.”

Freeman added: “I’m really excited to sign for my fourth season at the Bears.

“I’ve seen myself improve year on year and felt I had a strong contribution in 2018.

“Credit to all the fans who have stuck by the players and staff throughout the years. I look forward to seeing everyone at our matches in 2019.”
