RE-SIGNING – Ollett agrees new one year deal

Experienced second row Aaron Ollett will remain in the Thunder fold for 2019 after agreeing on a move from Championship side Dewsbury Rams for the 2018 season.

The 25-year-old made 24 appearances for Thunder over the 2018 season, adding to the 22 appearances he made over two seasons whilst an on-loan Hull Kingston Rovers.

With 26 Super League appearances under his belt for the Robins, along with 19 games in the Betfred Championship with Dewsbury Rams, Ollett brings a wealth of knowledge gained from playing across the three tiers of UK professional rugby league.

Equally adept in the back row and at hooker, he is a versatile player who will offer head coach Jason Payne numerous options throughout the season.

Jason Payne said: “I’m delighted Aaron has re-signed for 2018, he has considerable experience at a very high level which added a great deal to our squad last season and he will complement that being brought in by the likes of Remy (Marginet) and Liam (Finn).

“His versatility to be able to play in the middle, back row and at hooker gives us plenty of options. He is a very good player and an even better person with a great attitude and has already made a big impact at training.”

Ollett is signing number 14 for the 2019 Thunder squad, with Jack Aldous, Jared Blanke, Keal Carlile, Rhys Clarke, Liam Finn, Sam Luckley, Remy Marginet, Liam McAvoy, Alex Rowe, Niall Sidney, Evan Simons, David Weetman and Lewis Young already confirmed.
