Bears sign up hooker
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.
