Hunslet snare York captain for 2015

Hunslet have signed hooker Jack Lee from Championship One rivals York on a two-year deal from next season.

Lee, 25, has been an ever present for the City Knights in 2014, scoring 18 tries in 19 appearances, as the two sides battle it out for a place in next year’s re-formed Championship.

Hawks Director of Rugby, Darren Williams, said: “We were alerted to Jack’s availability and moved swiftly to secure his services on a two year deal. Myself and head coach Barry Eaton have been aware of Jack’s talent and his consistency since he joined the Knights in 2010 from Featherstone Rovers and he will be a key recruit for 2015 and beyond.

“Talks are currently taking place with a couple of potential recruits to strengthen the squad before the window closes and for the upcoming play off series.”

Lee’s current club, York, sit top of the table with 45 points, ahead of Oldham on 42, and Hunslet on 39, although the Hawks do have a game in hand.

The winners of the Championship One play-offs have been guaranteed a place in the Championship next season, despite the fact five teams will be relegated from the tier above at the end of the year.
