Former Hull KR and Castleford Tigers halfback joins Cornwall RLFC

As Cornwall RLFC prepare for their second season hoping to kick on from an encouraging debut season, the club have confirmed a major signing.

That’s in the shape of an exciting young halfback in Adam Rusling.

The halfback comes from Hull but started his career at Castleford Tigers making his professional debut against Salford prior to switching back to Hull KR where he featured predominately for their reserves alongside a long move to Cornwall scoring four times.

On the move he said to the club website: “I came down to Cornwall last season and played a few games for the club and I really enjoyed it.

“Everyone made me feel really welcome and it made me want to come back once I knew I was leaving Hull KR. I see Cornwall as a club with huge potential and I see myself being part of the club’s journey.

“Although I am only young at 19, I have been part of the environment at Super League clubs and hopefully I can bring some of the experience to things like pre-season and training for Cornwall and we can grow as a team.

“I have looked at how players like Liam Whitton – who has had a similar journey to me in terms of coming through the academy set-up at a Super league club then joining Cornwall – have excelled after joining the club and I want similar.

“I know there is a bit of pressure on me as a half-back because we’re the players that marshall the team around the pitch but this kind of challenge really excites me and I can’t wait to get started.”
