Hooker George Flanagan has signed a new two-year contract which will keep him at Hunslet Hawks until the end of 2018.

Flanagan joined Hunslet from Featherstone Rovers in 2015 after spells at Batley Bulldogs and Dewsbury Rams.

He has scored 17 tries in 40 games for Hunslet, including 11 touchdowns in 18 appearances this year.

Hunslet director of rugby Darren Williams said: “Retaining George was high on our priority list.

“He showed some loyalty to the club following relegation last season when he decided to stay and we are delighted to reward his loyalty with this two-year deal.

“His enthusiasm for the game and his attitude is second to none. He’s a born winner and this season he has been close to being back to where he was before his serious leg operation in 2014.”

Full-back Jimmy Watson scored a hat-trick of tries in the 32-18 win over Gloucestershire All Golds.
