Toulouse snap up James Cunningham

James Cunningham in action for London Broncos

Toulouse have made former Huddersfield hooker James Cunningham their first recruit for their Super League campaign.

The 27-year-old began his Super League career with home-town club Hull before going on to play for London Broncos, where he enjoyed a good spell making 104 appearances and scoring 31 tries before moving to Toronto Wolfpack in 2019.

James Cunningham was signed by Huddersfield on a two-year contract 12 months ago but did not play for them in the second half of the 2021 season, making just 10 appearances for the Giants and was released by mutual agreement.

“I’m really happy to join Toulouse,” he said. “I have been looking forward to this trip every season. I’m happy to make my home in the Pink City.

“I can’t wait to start this adventure and show that the club’s place is in the Super League.”

Toulouse president Bernard Sarrazain said: “With this new chapter which is opening for our club, we must strengthen ourselves with experienced players, this is the case with James.

“He has a lot of experience in the Super League and that’s what we’re looking for.”
