Hemingway adds class to Cambridge
The 24-year-old former Leicester Tiger, who has moved to Volac Park in a bid to return to full match fitness, can play in a number of positions, but with Steve Hipwell out long-term with a shoulder injury, Joe Collingham now travelling, Dan will start at No8 v Chinnor tomorrow.
Hemingway joined Leicester academy in 2006 and made his first-team debut in the 2008/09 season before going on loan for two seasons with dual registration with Nottingham. He moved to Leeds Carnegie on a two-year contract at the start of the 2011/12 season.
Rowland says, "Dan played alongside Newbs at Tigers, and through that link he has seen Cambridge as a real platform to help him return to the higher leagues. He has trained over the last few weeks and is now set to start at 8, tomorrow v Chinnor."
Newbs says, "Dan adds real class and experience to the pack, and will be great mentor for our younger players. We have shown this week, with Ben Brownlie being loaned to Nottingham, that Cambridge Rugby is now recognised as a club that develops players and pushes them on to the championship and beyond. Dan will play for us and more than likely attract attention from Championship clubs and we are happy to support that."
