Spotlight on Success: Hunslet ARLFC

Hunslet ARLFC, the rugby section of The Hunslet Club, have achieved tremendous success and given opportunities  for our young members at the club and in the community.

The success of Hunslet ARLFC stands as a testament to the club’s unwavering dedication, resilience, and passion for rugby league. With a rich history spanning decades, Hunslet ARLFC has established itself as a powerhouse in the sport in their first year as Hunslet ARLFC after the merger of Hunslet Club Parkside and Hunslet Warriors, consistently achieving remarkable feats on and off the field.

At the heart of Hunslet ARLFC’s success is its strong sense of community. The club’s commitment, teamwork, and instilling values of sportsmanship and integrity has laid the foundation for numerous triumphs.

Through the tireless efforts of coaches, volunteers, players and supporters, Hunslet ARLFC have seen huge success in the club’s first year. The first team won the National Premier Division League Leaders Shield and were crowned National Grand Final Champions. Also they have won the Open Age BARLA Cup and travelled to Wakefield Trinity in round 4 of the BetFred Challenge Cup.

The club’s impact extends beyond the confines of the rugby field as we saw record numbers of young people in our Half Term Rugby Camp this February. Inspired by Hunslet ARLFC’s success, the Rugby Camp which was made up of 30 of our young members aged 6-12, spent 2 days immersing themselves in the world of rugby league. Some learning how to pass and kick for the first time and others building on skills they already have. We are excited about the future and growth of our Rugby Camps and are proud of Hunslet ARLFC and the impact their success and hard work is having on our young members.

This Easter we are taking the rugby camp kids to watch the team run, meet and greet the players and coaches at the Super League team Warrington Wolves ahead of their Friday fixture. This is to give our aspiring young rugby players an insight into professional rugby, inspire and excite them.

As Hunslet ARLFC continues to build on its legacy of success, it remains a source of pride and inspiration for players, supporters, and young people alike. With each triumph, the club reinforces its position as a beacon of sporting excellence in our community.
