The recruitment drive at promoted Hunslet Hawks has continued with the signing of 28-year-old prop forward Mark Castle on a one-year contract from Doncaster.
Castle joined Doncaster in 2012 and has been one of their most consistent performers during his three-year spell at the club. He made 14 appearances in 2014, scoring three tries.
Hawks’ director of rugby Darren Williams said: “Mark has really established himself as a top Championship front row forward and played a major part in Doncaster’s prominent rise into the high echelons of the second tier of the game.
“He is an aggressive no-nonsense forward who will provide some grunt and added steel to our forward pack in 2015, which will be needed.”
Castle said: “I’m looking forward to joining a club that will be buzzing from last year’s success and I’m hoping to add to the squad that the club are putting together. I can’t wait to get started in November when pre-season commences and meeting all the lads.”
