It is with great regret that I have learned of the death of former Hunslet RLFC favourite Ernest Kurtz.

Our thoughts and sympathies are with Ernie’s family at this difficult time.

Ernest was born in Wollongong Australia and played for Corrimal Cougars before he made the long journey to the UK to further his rugby career.
Ernest signed for Hunslet in the 1971-72 season making his debut at Parkside against Huyton. (that must have been a culture shock).

There will be a minuets silence in memory of Ernest before Hunslets RLFC home game against Newcastle Thunder at South Leeds Stadium on Sunday 19th February 3pm K.O.

Fiona, Ernest daughter put together some videos that she had captured of her dad which are very nice memories and she would like to share them with us.
