Mvududu extends Hunslet stay


Hunslet have confirmed that Mufaro Mvududu has inked a one-year extension to his current contract at the club.

The 25-year-old centre joined the south Leeds outfit from London Skolars in 2015,  making 15 appearances and scoring two tries in 2015.

He scored nine tries in 23 appearances in 2016, and is delighted to be staying put.

“I’m really happy to have signed a contract extension, having spoken to James Coyle [Hunslet coach] and Darren Williams [Hunslet director of rugby] it was an obvious choice for me.

“The thoughts and ideas they have for the club really impressed me and im looking forward to working with Coyley to further improve my game.

“The culture and togetherness at the club is massive which is one of the main reasons I’ve decided stay with the club; not to mention the future at Hunslet looks really exciting and positive at the moment.

“I am looking forward to a successful year on and off the field and just being a part of all the success I’m sure the club is due for.”

Darren Williams hopes that the player can continue to develop with the club.

“Mufaro really kicked on in 2016 as he cemented his place in the team and had a consistent year,” he said.

“His performances were noted by rival clubs but he is settled here at South Leeds and with the close knit group we have on board for 2017 if was always his preferred option to stay.

“Hopefully his performances will continue to improve and we can both kick on again together in 2017 and have a successful year.”
