Back rower Adam Hopkinson spent nearly four years in the Academy set-up having joined in 2020 as a young Yorkshire prospect.
Adam started in the Knights Academy set-up in 2020. His young CV already includes Sandal RUFC, Doncaster Phoenix and representative honours for Yorkshire County and Yorkshire Carnegie’s U16s and U18s. From a leadership standpoint, Adam captained his university side Gloucestershire U20s and South West County U20s.
Adam made his Knights first team debut in February 2023 in a Championship Cup fixture against Coventry at Butts Park Arena before making a further 5 appearances throughout the remainder of the 2022/23 season.
