Hunslet sign Leeming as Carbutt commits

Hunslet have confirmed that Cameron Leeming has signed for them for the 2017 season.

The 21-year-old centre or second row has inked a one-year deal after spending time with Wyong Roos in Australia.

He has also been with Leeds Rhinos and Wakefield Trinity during his career.

“I am very happy to have signed at Hunslet for this season,” he said.

“All the players and the coaching staff have been really welcoming and i am looking forward to getting stuck in and having a big season in 2017.”

Hunslet director of rugby Darren Williams is pleased to have snapped up the youngster.

“Cameron was another casualty of Super League clubs having to make an early decision on a player’s ability at just 19,” he said.

“He spent a year in Australia before returning home and joined Stanningley.

“He got in touch and we were instantly impressed with him to offer him a playing contract after just 2 weeks into pre-season.

“He adds to the core of Leeds based players looking for an opportunity in the game and we want Hunslet to be made up of local young talent.”

Meanwhile, Matt Carbutt has also committed to the club, signing a one-year contract extension.

“Matt had a consistent year last season and although under new head coach James Coyle Matt may well play a slightly different role in 2017,” said Williams.

“He is the ideal role model to help create the kind of culture we want at this club and will help the likes of Nyle Flynn adopt to senior rugby.”
