Hunslet retain Jack Aldous for 2021

Hunslet have announced the re-signing of forward Jack Aldous for the 2021 campaign.

The former Hull FC, York and Newcastle has agreed a one-year deal with the Parksiders.

Aldous said: “I was delighted to join Hunslet late last year, especially as I was teaming up again with coach Gary Thornton, who I’d enjoyed working with at York.

“We’d gone well in pre-season, had started off impressively in the league, and also had a good run in the Challenge Cup, so it was clear to me that we were building something good.

“I’m 29 now, and at this stage of my career being at an excellent club like Hunslet is exactly right for me.

“And I enjoy whatever role GT asks me to adopt, whether it’s playing big minutes at prop or coming off the bench to take over from Vila Halafihi at loose forward on the occasions when he’s been switched to hooker.”

Hunslet coach Gary Thornton said: “I was fortunate to get Jack on board last year amid competition from other League 1 and Championship clubs.

“During his short spell with us last season he showed what value he adds to the team, and hopefully the fans saw a glimpse of what is to come from Jack.

“His work rate is phenomenal and he never takes a backward step. He’s not the biggest of middle unit players, but he has adapted his game well to be really effective in both attack and defence.”
