Hunslet sign Niall Walker from London Broncos

Hunslet have signed utility Niall Walker on a one-year deal from London Broncos.

The 23-year-old originally joined Hunslet in 2017 after a five-year spell in Australia with Wests Tigers, Parramatta Eels and Balmain Tigers.

Walker joined Batley in 2018 before moving to London Broncos last February – but he will return to Hunslet for the 2021 League 1 campaign.

Walker said: “So much in rugby league, and in all other walks of life, is in limbo right now, and it’s great to get some stability, which Hunslet certainly offer, back into my life.

“I’d enjoyed my time at the club and I’m delighted to again come under the wing of Gary Thornton (Hunslet coach), who knows me well and who I know nurtures his players.

“The squad at Hunslet is a strong one and I’m sure we can make an impact on the battle for promotion next season.

“Even though Ottawa will be in the mix, and will have recruited strongly, we should certainly be there or thereabouts.”
