The proposal is to to rename the club Hunslet R.L.F.C.

“I would like to gauge your opinion, as loyal supporters of the club, before deciding on the name as we prepare to continue to develop our great club for 2017 and beyond.”
“If the outcome of the initial vote is in favour of a rebrand, then further supporter consultation will take place in terms of the design of the club crest and playing kits for 2017.”
Voting forms will be available on Friday night, and supporters attending Hunslet’s game against Doncaster will have the opportunity to cast their vote.
