Hunslet Hawks sign half-back Gale

Hunslet have further bolstered their squad for the 2015 season, after completing the signing of Bradford Bulls youngster Jordan Gale on a one-year contract. Gale, who is a former Leeds Rhinos scholarship star, has been playing for the Bulls’ academy side in 2015, and is the cousin of current Super League star Luke Gale, who has just signed for Castleford Tigers.

Hawks Director of rugby Darren Williams said: “Jordan is a goal kicking half back who lives in Middleton, he was looking for an opportunity to progress his career and was keen on testing himself playing open age semi professional rugby.

“He is keen and hungry to grasp this opportunity with both hands and is really looking forward to wearing the Hunslet shirt and ripping into pre season next month. It’s been our policy to encourage as many local lads to play for their community club as possible given that were now a supporters owned club & the fact that we need to engage with & be at the heart of the local community to increase our support base.”

Gale himself admitted it was an honour to be signed up at Hunslet, saying: “I’m pleased to be on board at Hunslet, it means that something extra special with me being a local lad I can’t wait to wear the famous Myrtle, Flame & White.”
