Bears sign up hooker

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - SPORT -

BURLEIGH have bol­stered their In­trust Su­per Cup roster depth by sign­ing Hay­den Hansen.

The 24-year-old played for Swin­ton in the English Su­per League’s sec­ond-tier Cham­pi­onship com­pe­ti­tion last sea­son and pre­vi­ously played for Red­cliffe, hav­ing cap­tained the Dol­phins dur­ing his colts days.

Hansen is pre­dom­i­nantly a hooker but also pro­vides back­row cover. He joins props Ja­cob Hind and Oliver Percy as 2019 sign­ings.

“They’re prob­a­bly our only ones. We have been very lucky to sign most of the peo­ple from last year,” Bears coach Jimmy Leni­han said.

The 2016 ISC premiers were ti­tle con­tenders for much of last sea­son, ul­ti­mately mak­ing it to the pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal.
