Rochdale Hornets have announced that Liam Whalley, James Connaughton and Adam Hesketh have re-signed with the club for the 2021 League 1 season.
All three players joined the club ahead of the 2020 season, while Whalley scored his debut try in their league opener against Keighley.
“Liam is a real strong player,” said head coach Matt Calland.
“He plays well above his weight and is still only in his 20s, despite looking older than me. He can cover centre and second-row. He runs great lines and hits hard in defence.
“Jimmy is as tough as they come. He’s a no-nonsense sort of player and another local lad. He has had awful luck with injury, but now he has recovered he will be looking to make a big impact in 2021.
“Adam works really hard on his game and is a credit to the Thatto Heath amateur club over in St Helens. He has adapted to the pro game with ease and I look forward to working with him in 2021.”
