Leeds Tykes is delighted to announce four more players who have committed their future to the club for the 2023/24 campaign.

Will Dennis
As tighthead prop, Will played 16 times, scoring 1 try in the first half of last season. As injury kept him out since January, he is itching to get back to the dark arts of the front row.

Junior Nu’u
Junior made 14 appearances last season. The powerful centre scored 1 try and was mostly seen charging into the opposition ball in hand or putting in big tackles.

Seremaia Bai Turagabeci
‘Jerry’ scored 6 tries in his 18 appearances last season. He has spent the off-season playing lots of sevens rugby so we’re hoping he’ll come back with even better ball handling and dancing feet skills.

Jordan Cordice
Jordan made 3 appearances in the front row in the latter stages of last season after initially joining to reconnect with the rugby environment and enjoying the training following advice to stop playing. If you’ve missed Jordan’s story, have a read.

On his re-signing, Junior said: “It will be an exciting season ahead. We’ve kept majority of the squad together but also added some experience as well as some exciting young talent from the partnership we have with the universities of Leeds and Beckett.

“We will look to, hopefully, having a great year and play some exciting Tykes rugby.”

Jerry added: “I’m excited to get back to grafting with the boys as we build towards September. Got potential to create something special with these boys and I’m looking forward to it.”
