Hooker Ben Hunter has established himself as one of the Knights mainstays having arrived from the non-professional ranks of Cambridge in the summer of 2013.
Having battled for starting birth in his debut season at Castle Park, Hunter took to the Championship rugby immediately and in 2014/15 was an ever-present on the Knights team sheet. His efforts were recognized at that campaign’s End of Season Awards as he scooped the coveted Players’ Player of the Year trophy.
The 31-year-old was a lynchpin in the Knights 2015/16 campaign, being selected to the Championship Dream XV as the Knights reached the play-off finals. Last season Hunter continued his fine form and has now surpassed 100 appearances for the Club.
