Hunslet have announced the signings of Harvey Hallas and Danny Rowse for the 2020 League One season.
Hallas, 22, joins on a one-year deal, having spent the 2019 season with Dewsbury Rams and Keighley Cougars on loan.
“I’ve played against Hunslet a few times in the last few years and I’ve always been impressed by their big and fearsome middles, typified by Zach Braham, who runs hard and straight,” Hallas said.
“I’m similar. My game’s about leg speed, hard drives and making yardage. You don’t get many frills from me, I leave the ball-handling skills to the backs.”
Rowse, 29, joins from amateur National Conference League side Hunslet Club Parkside on a one-year deal.
The halfback, who was awarded as the NCL Player of the Year a few seasons ago, has represented BARLA international and is son of former Hunslet player Martin Rowse
“I’ve had offers to turn pro over the years but I’ve always turned them down. Either they didn’t tie in with my work or they were in Lancashire, which was too far away for me,” he said.
“But the vibes when I spoke to Hunslet’s head coach Gary Thornton and Football Manager Darren Williams made me think that the time’s now right.
“They were so enthusiastic and as a local lad I know that this is a great club with a tremendous history.
“I couldn’t help getting excited about what they are trying to achieve and it also helps that I don’t live too far away; everything has fallen into place.”
