Hemel Stags are pleased to announce they have secured the services of former Leeds Rhinos youth product, Jamal Chisholm until the end of the season.

Chisholm, pictured left playing for Leeds academy, has twice been crowned rugby league’s fastest man, and is a welcome addition to the squad ahead of the important upcoming games at home to the University of Gloucestershire a week on Sunday, and a trip to Oxford on the final weekend of the regular season, two matches which will determine whether Hemel play post season rugby in September.

Hemel Stags head coach Troy Perkins, who gave Chisholm his debut against Oldham on Sunday, is delighted to be able to strengthen his squad at this stage of the campaign and said, 

“Jamel is a quality signing for us.

“He has come through a fantastic junior system at Leeds Rhinos, he is a great finisher and will add plenty of pace to our backline.

“He was playing in the Championship with Featherstone Rovers, and after spending a brief spell out of the game was keen to get back to playing rugby league.

“He has plenty of speed and has won Super League's fastest player a couple of times so I am looking forward to seeing him in open space.”
