Hunslet have signed former Hull utility back Reece Dean on a one-year deal.
Dean, 21, came through the Hull academy and made the move to Toronto Wolfpack in 2017.
He moved on to Sheffield and then Doncaster, before a spell in the community game with Skirlaugh.
Coach Gary Thornton said: “Reece was on my target list to sign last season after he left Toronto, but he joined the prison service so was unable to commit to training and playing.
“His circumstances have now changed and he contacted me about joining us, and I am really looking forward to him coming in and showing the Hunslet fans what he can do.
“Reece came through the Hull FC academy where he was very highly rated, and spent time at Doncaster with me on dual registration, and his form that year earned him a contract at Toronto in their inaugural year.
“He can play both half back and full back, and will give us added options in those key pivotal positions.
“He takes the line on well, and is a very confident and enthusiastic young man, and will be a huge asset to our group.”
