Hunslet RLFC have announced the signing of Zach Braham for the remainder of the 2018 season following his release from Doncaster RLFC.

The prop forward made 11 appearances for Doncaster in Betfred’s League One in 2018, scoring three tries.

Head coach Gary Thornton told the club’s official website: “I’m delighted we have been able to bring Zach in at this stage of the season.

“We have been struggling a little with injuries lately, so when a quality player like Zach becomes available, we had to act quickly to tie him up and get him on board, amid competition from Championship clubs for his signature.

“I gave Zach his first opportunity at this level when I signed him for Doncaster from Toll Bar.

“Although he has been at Hull FC and Sheffield as a junior, and he has grown and improved as a player since then to become an established League 1 prop forward, he has so much more potential to fulfil yet, and hopefully he can do that with us.

“He is an aggressive runner of the ball, and offers a lot of punch in the middle of the field.

“I’m really looking forward to working with him again and welcoming him into our group.”
