Hunslet have signed 20-year-old winger Ryan Ince from Widnes Vikings on an initial one-month’s loan.

Ince played under Hunslet’s new coach James Coyle last season during a dual-registration spell at Whiteheven.

Coyle said: “I’m delighted to secure Ryan on loan. I think we have a really well-balanced squad and bringing in a winger with Super League experience puts pressure on our guys to increase their performance.

“We now have some really healthy competition for places in the outside-backs. We have experience along with some youthful energy and this will provide a good environment for our outside-backs to improve together.”

Widnes coach Denis Betts reckons Ince will benefit from his stint at Hunslet.

“Having enjoyed first-team action in our pre-season, we were keen that Ryan could carry this momentum forward,” Betts said.

“We are pleased to have arranged a loan agreement with Hunslet RLFC, where he can benefit from competitive games.”

Meanwhile back-row forward Danny Williams has been released by Hunslet by mutual consent and returned to amateur club Siddal.
