Appointed club captain for the 2023 Betfred League 1 season, Jack Ray battled back from a broken hand suffered in April last year to enjoy a fine debut campaign.
The 23-year-old started his rugby career at his local club Oulton Raiders before joining the academy set-up at Super League side Castleford Tigers.
Ray remained at the Jungle until 2019 when he joined Championship outfit Dewsbury Rams. During the 2019 campaign, Ray spent time on loan at Coventry Bears, a League 1 side who for this year have rebranded as Midlands Hurricanes.
Before the covid-19 pandemic struck, Ray had moved to Hunslet but owing to the 2020 season being declared null and void at every level below Super League, Ray’s stay at the South Leeds Stadium was cut short.
He then left Yorkshire to embark on a different career path in the forces and is currently stationed in Cornwall.
