Family ties for Swinton
Co-operative Championship club Swinton Lions are keeping it in the family by signing a trio of players with impeccable pedigree, including Liam Hulme from Warrington Wolves.
Second row forward Hulme, 21 is the son of former Widnes Vikings and Great Britain international Paul Hulme.
“Liam is a quality player with a great pedigree,” said Swinton director of rugby Paul Kidd.
The Lions’ other newcomers are Kash Watkins, the brother of Leeds Rhinos and England centre Kallum Watkins who is returning for a second spell, and forward David Mills, son of former Wales and Great Britain prop Jim Mills who is also back for a second stint.
