Dewsbury Rams can announce that they have signed loose forward Liam Mackay for the 2019 season.

Previously at Hunslet, Mackay at 28 years old has a wealth of experience to bring to the side. He helped Hunslet secure promotion back in 2014, and although he was at the club a long time he now feels this is the right time to move on.

On joining the Rams he said: “I have been playing at Hunslet for the last five or six years and I got the call off of Lee to come here, so I jumped at the chance to test myself in the Championship.

“I played a couple of games at this level in 2012 and also when Hunslet got promoted in 2014, however I think this is the right time again to test myself in the Championship.

“It is a good progression path for me, and to come to a club like Dewsbury with a lot of tradition and history will be a good club to be at.”
