It is with deep regret that I have to announce the passing away of Tommy Waite.

Tommy signed for Hunslet around the same time as his great friend Peter Jarvis, he was later transferred and went on to play with distinction for Bramley R.L.F.C.

He played in the front row with Dave Horne.

Tommy had been bravely battling with cancer for quite some time. He was a very religious person and a devout Catholic.

We send our deepest sympathy to his wife Margaret and family.

We will announce his funeral arraignments later.

May He Rest In Peace.
