Jim O’Sullivan signed for Wigan in 1935. He was a left wing three quarter who came from Cork, and was transferred to Hunslet in September 1937, aged 24.
He’d played for Cork Constitutional RU Club (a famous old club) and represented Munster province in the Irish trials before joining Wigan. He played five times for the first team and scored 2 tries.
It looks as if Jim O’Sullivan met with much greater success at Hunslet since a year after his transfer he found himself on the Hunslet winning team against Leeds in the Championship Final, watched by a crowd of well over 50,000.
