Hunslet confirm RFL investigation into player contracts

Hunslet Hawks have revealed that the RFL are investigating the contracts of two of their players, James Duckworth and Luke Briscoe.

The club have issued a statement which asserts that the club have complied with the RFL request, but are unsure about why the investigation is necessary.

The statement reads:

“The club can confirm that we have been approached by the RFL for permission to speak to James Duckworth and Luke Briscoe and have cooperated with this request.

“We understand that this is part of a review of the contracts of a number of players currently appearing in the Championship competition.

“James and Luke signed for the Hawks from Leeds Rhinos back in February and contracts were lodged and accepted by the RFL at the time.

“As such we are nonplussed as to why the RFL are carrying out subsequent reviews now as we would have expected any anomalies to have been highlighted then.

“We have specifically requested that these reviews are concluded as swiftly as possible.”

When contacted by Love Rugby League for their view on the matter, the RFL confirmed that they would not be commenting at this stage.
