Betfred League 1 outfit Hunslet RLFC have announced squad numbers for the coming Rugby League campaign.

Newly-appointed skipper Steve Crossley will wear the number 10 shirt, while joint vice-captains Michael Knowles and Jimmy Watson (the fullback will enjoy a richly deserved benefit in 2023) have been handed the number 13 and 1 jerseys respectively.

The Parksiders’ squad is:

  1 Jimmy Watson

  2 Jack Render

  3 Adam Ryder

  4 Joe Burton

  5 Kieron Lawton

  6 Jake Sweeting

  7 Nathan Conroy

  8 Harvey Hallas

  9 Sam Hallas

10 Steve Crossley

11 Josh Jordan-Roberts

12 Aaron York

13 Michael Knowles

14 Danny Barcoe

15 Nathan Newbound

16 Jordan Syme

17 Lewis Wray

18 Harvey Whiteley

19 Peter Ryan

20 Tyler Walton

21 Morgan Punchard

22 Liam Carr

23 Jamie Greenwood

24 Fraser Stroud

25 Dan McGrath

26 Jordan Bull

27 Sean Croston

28 Brad Wheeler

Fullback or threequarter Nico Rizzelli, who signed for the Parksiders back in October, has been unable to take up his contract because of work commitments; Hunslet are actively seeking a replacement and, in addition, have a number of players on trial.
