Hunslet forward commits future

Hunslet forward Josh Tonks has confirmed he will honour the second year of his contract at the club.

The 28-year-old signed the deal at the start of the 2018 season, and has been a key player for the South Leeds side.

Tonks told the club website: “I am keen to help complete last year’s unfinished business, when we missed out in the play-offs.

“We have a great set of lads at the South Leeds Stadium, while coach Gary Thornton is fantastic to play for.

“Hunslet’s a tremendous club, it’s a great environment all round and I’m very happy to be here.”

Head Coach Gary Thornton added:  “I’m delighted. Josh is a very valuable player to have around, on and off the field.

“He rarely has a poor game and you’re guaranteed 100 per cent effort from him.

“He’s a very popular player, both within the squad and with our supporters, and he’s highly regarded by opposing clubs, which says a lot.

“Josh is a key retention in every way. He wants the ball in his hands all the time and if that doesn’t happen he soon lets me – and his half backs! – know about it.

“He’s a big left-side threat for us, very much our `go-to’ man, and he runs superb lines, which is why he gets over the try-line so regularly.”
