Leeds players Jimmy Keinhorst, Liam Hood, Jimmy Watson and Josh Sunley have signed dual-registration deals with Championship side Hunslet.

The quartet will feature for the Hawks when not selected in the Rhinos first team squad as part of the new partnership between the two clubs.

Hunslet coach Barry Eaton said: “As with any player, everyone must be performing to their maximum ability to be selected but the quality from the dual registrations is undoubted and I am looking forward to welcoming them. 

“All the players will no doubt be out to impress this weekend as Leeds look to be putting out a very strong team with some quality recognised first team players taking part which promises to be a great game.

Leeds take on Hunslet in the Lazenby Cup on Sunday at the South Leeds Stadium.
