Hunslet’s Jack Lee working 70 hours a week during coronavirus pandemic

Hunslet hooker Jack Lee is working 70 hours a week during lockdown as well as training on the side to keep fit for when the game resumes.

Lee works for TalkTalk and is currently busy installing fibre optic broadband in West Yorkshire homes to ensure that internet access is available to all at this difficult time.

And on top of working 70 hours a week, Lee is also training at home so he can be as fit as possible for when League 1 gets back underway.

Lee said: “So many people are stuck at home right now, and it’s unclear for how long.

“There’s more demand for internet access than ever but a surge in usage could lead to overload, so it’s important that we connect as many homes up as quickly as we can; it’s perhaps not generally realised how vital it is that the internet network be maintained.

“I’m putting in 70 hours a week, while also making sure I keep training hard for Hunslet.

“Head coach Gary Thornton has set us programmes that we’re all adhering to so that, as and when the 2020 season resumes, will be ready to go.”
