Stags' Hunter 'overwhelmed' at GB selection

MIRFIELD STAGS have organised a Jamaican-themed fundraising event to help raise money for their 19-year-old three-quarter Braden Hunter.

The event comes off the back of Hunter’s selection to the BARLA Great Britain Under-23s squad. The representative side fly out to the Caribbean in May for a two-week tour.

The fundraising event will be held at The Saville Arms in Mirfield on Saturday February 27 (7pm) and will raise much needed cash to get Braden on the flight with the rest of the GB squad.

Regarding the trip and his future rugby league career Hunter, said: “It was overwhelming to have been given the nod to tour Jamaica with Great Britain.

“I hope I can use this as a springboard and push my playing career to the next level this summer and hopefully end up signing a professional contract.”
