Halfback joins Hunslet for third time

Posted by

Halfback Simon Brown will join League One side Hunslet for a third spell ahead of the 2020 season.

He played for the club last season on loan from Dewsbury Rams, he last played for the club permanently in the 2016 season.

A member of the Leeds academy, Brown left the Rhinos without playing a game. He has since made a career for himself in the lower leagues with Doncaster, Sheffield Eagles, York City Knights, Halifax, Batley Bulldogs and Dewsbury.

Brown told the club website: “I thoroughly enjoyed playing under Head Coach Gary Thornton towards the end of the recent campaign and I had no hesitation at all about coming back again.

“My role is to dictate play in line with his instructions. It worked well last season and I’m looking forward to building on that next year.”

Thornton added: “Simon made a massive difference in his short spell with us last season. He managed our game-plan superbly, he has an astute kicking game, and he’s a good voice on – and off – the pitch.

“He’s very good at ensuring that the coaches’ instructions are put into practice and his partnership with Dom Brambani will be invaluable; they were very effective together at Sheffield and that previous understanding will stand us in good stead.”
