Former Castleford Tigers winger signs for new club at the age of 38

Hunslet have made another impressing signing after bringing in the likes of former Bradford Bulls and Leeds Rhinos hooker Sam Hallas by signing Rob Worrincy 

The winger, who recently celebrated his 38th birthday, stands over six feet tall and weighs in at nearly 15 stones. And he will bring a wealth of experience to the cause as what promises to be an exciting 2023 Betfred League One campaign for the Parksiders’ passionate supporters fast approaches.

Worrincy spent much of last year with Rochdale Hornets, having come out of retirement to star with British Police in the 2022 President’s Cup, scoring a spectacular long-range try in a stunning victory over competition favourites England Universities.

Verbal agreement had been reached between the player and Hunslet several weeks ago but the club, recognising his work commitments with the police, agreed to delay completion of the registration process until now.

Hunslet have strength and conditioning coach Miles Greenwood to thank for instigating the signing of a player whose previous clubs include London Broncos, Castleford Tigers, Sheffield Eagles, Halifax and Dewsbury Rams.

He has scored over 250 career tries in over 350 games during his career,

His best rugby perhaps came at Halifax where he scored 96 tries in 117 games. He also scored 58 tries in 76 games.
