YORK City Knights have pulled off a major coup with the signing of ex-Super League Dream Team forward Adam Cuthbertson from Leeds Rhinos.

Cuthbertson made over 100 NRL appearances before joining Leeds in 2015. In his debut year, the Australian played 34 times and won the domestic treble of the Challenge Cup, the League Leaders’ Shield and the Super League title.

Cuthbertson played a starring role that year, being named in the Dream Team and breaking the top-flight offloads record.

Two years later, he again lifted silverware as Leeds beat Castleford Tigers in the 2017 Grand Final.

Knights head coach James Ford said of the signing, which was made possible due to a donation by the club’s Squadbuilder: “I feel Adam will make a significant impact on our preparations and culture, as well as our on-field performances.

"He gives us added leadership and experience, but also a different dimension to our attack with his offload game. I was impressed with Adam’s drive to be the best version of himself, his humility and I’m excited to work with him.”

York have also re-signed Heworth’s Myles Harrison on community dual registration for 2021.
