Hunslet RLFC have entered into a dual-registration agreement for 2017 with the Bradford Bulls.

Hunslet had previous dual-registration agreements in place with Leeds Rhinos and Featherstone Rovers and, following a couple of meetings with officials of Hunslet and Bradford, an agreement was reached between both parties.

Chief executive Martin Flynn said: “Dual-registration is a hot topic of debate.

“We have a strong squad in place under James Coyle and Steve Deakin and although we don’t expect to use dual-registration extensively it gives us the opportunity should we wish to take it to increase our player pool at any particular time.”

Bulls chairman Andrew Chalmers added: “We are delighted to have entered into this partnership with Hunslet RLFC.

“Used correctly, it can be of great benefit to both parties and we are looking forward to a fruitful relationship with them.”
