Joint WolfHunt chairman Richard Tempest-Mitchell, said: “Luke has been with jus since late last season and is developing very well within our set up.

“He has experience from Featherstone Lions junior ranks, but is coming on leaps and bounds in our first team.

“We are very excited at his inclusion in the Scotland Squad, which has several full time Super League U19s players and others from high level amateur rugby league up and down the UK.

“Luke is a talented rugby league player for his age, he is a well-grounded young man, who is a credit to his very proud parents.

“His father Lee Walters is in our Development side coaching team, which this past week has attended a focussed conditioning and skills coaching session with Leeds Rhinos head xoach Brian McDermott.

Later in the Super league Season this relationship with Leeds Rhinos will see the Wolf Hunt open a Leeds Rhinos, Super 8s Playoff game, with a similar coaching session, from Rhinos coaching staff.
