Huddersfield RUFC has continued the strengthening of their squad for next season with the signing of highly-rated Guyana International 7s winger Dominic Lespierre.
27-year-old Lespierre has an impressive pedigree following spells with UWA in Perth, South Magpies Club in Brisbane, Castleford Tigers Rugby League Club and more recently a short spell with National II North rivals Hull.
Huddersfield Head Coach Gareth Lewis said: “Dominic will bring proven talent, personality and a voice to our back line. He has serious pace and will be a threat to many sides in the league.
“We have strengthened a lot in the forward pack so it’s great to add to the back line. Hopefully this will enable us to play a varied game plan, something that we will certainly need to do in the season ahead.”
Speaking about becoming a Huddersfield player, Lespierre said: “I’m very excited to be part of a team that looks to have a good balance of youth and experience, which has obviously paid dividends through getting promoted last year.
“I think the main aim for the season is to stay in the league whilst looking to play a good and exciting brand of rugby.”
Huddersfield is currently five weeks into its pre-season training campaign and is preparing for pre-season fixtures at home to Sheffield Tigers on 23rd August and Cleackheaton on 30th August.
