Hunslet retain key duo for 2021

Hunslet have announced the re-signings of Duane Straugheir and Vila Halafihi for the 2021 League 1 season.

Both have agreed to one-year deals that will keep them at the South Leeds Stadium until the end of 2021.

Club captain Straff, 30, said: “We were on course for a very good year and that very good year will now be in 2021 instead of this one.

“The same mentality is in place within the squad, and we aim to complete unfinished business.

“We’ll have had the best part of a year’s rest by the time we start again. I’ll be fresh as a daisy and fully fit for the first time in years, in fact the lockdown might have added as much as three seasons to my career.”

Halafihi, 26, was the Player of the Year and Coach’s Player of the Year in 2019.

He said: “It’s about unfinished business. We’d started really well, GT had put a very strong squad together, and we were starting to show what we could achieve.

“But it all came to a halt, and we’ll just have to pick up where we left off.”
