THE USA Tomahawks have been forced to make a late change to their RLWC playing squad, after scans revealed Luke Hume had suffered a fractured leg.
We advised RLWC officials of the injury , and after being satisfied of its legitimacy, they have consented to Taylor Welch being added to the 24 man squad in place of Hume.
Welch is a Dallas born, United States based outside back, who has impressed with the Connecticut Wildcats.
Hume is facing a three to four month rehabilitation.
“I can’t wait to represent the country it’s going to be a honour and an amazing experience,” Welch said.
