Harvey Reynolds, Francis Coggle, and Jack Potter, the halfback for Hull KR, have all signed with York RLFC. This comes ahead of 2024, which will see the entrance of Tom Lineham, another big coup for the club, and Leeds Rhinos star Richie Myler.
Undoubtedly, the signing of Richie Myler was a significant coup for the team. It is anticipated that Tome Linheam will be the next in line.
But they’ve also developed a strong roster and signed three more promising young players from the Super League.
Jack Potter, who enrolled in the Academy at the age of sixteen and spent a year playing for the reserves, comes to the Knights from Hull KR as a halfback.
“Yeah, I’m really excited,” Jack Potter stated after signing with the Knights. I’m eager to get started since I think this is a fantastic opportunity for me and I sincerely appreciate the Club providing it to me.
“When I first learned about it, I wanted to come right immediately…I think the Club is excellent, it’s run extremely well, they’ve done great this year, and maybe I can be a part of it.
“I’m delighted to sign here with York; it’s a team with big ambition and a good project that’s well underway,” said Francis Coggle, a recent addition to the Knights.
“I’m eager to get going in the right direction. After spending a season and a half at Castleford, I thought it was time to move on and, ideally, pursue other opportunities.
Francis Coggle, a center/winger, moves from Castleford Tigers to York. He began his rugby career with Hull KR Academy in the Covid era before moving on to play amateur rugby league for Beverley in the National Conference. In 2020, Coggle was then selected for the Castleford Tigers reserve team.
“I feel like those experiences have set me up well for this now,” Coggle said.
Harvey Reynolds, a back-rower from the Hull KR Academy, follows suit and joins the Knights: I was totally sold on it by Hendo.
“I truly enjoy the Club’s current course and direction.I see it as a fantastic chance for me to grow as a player.I am eager to get going.
“I want to be a part of this because the lads and the facilities are great and they work hard for each other.” When playing, you need players that are similar to that.
“I’ve always made it clear that at the end of the season, I felt we needed a bigger squad going into the 2024 season,” Knights head coach Andrew Henderson continued.
“To provide us greater competition for spots during training and during the season, in addition to adding depth. These three youthful athletes were made available during the off-season.
All of them seem like they have something to offer, and they’ll fit right in here at York. We’re thrilled to be able to give them this chance.
“It’s critical that, in terms of the squad, we strike the correct balance between veteran players, established players, and younger players who are still developing.”
“These three players will undoubtedly still be in the early stages of their player development, but I believe they will bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm, and I believe they have some workable potential that we can develop here at York.”
“I’m very interested to see what they can add to the squad and the club. Hopefully, over the course of the next 12 months, their play will improve, and who knows, they might stay with the Club longer in the future.
“Having Jack Potter and Harvey Reynolds on board is a huge pleasure for me; both have experience with the Hull KR system.”
“Jack is a productive small halfback with excellent kicking skills and excellent organizational abilities.
“Harvey Reynolds is a promising young player who looks like a true athlete and runs really strong lines.
“And Francis Coggle, a winger/fullback from Castleford Tigers, who I think has the ability to grow and develop and should do well in our setting.
“I’m thrilled to have all three of them on board, and I’m excited to see what 2024 will hold for the squad.”
