The Wollongong Hawks have added two more pieces to the puzzle for the 2014-15 season, re-signing free agents Tim Coenraad and Larry Davidson.

Coenraad, 29, has secured a two-year contract, while 31-year-old Davidson took a one-year deal.

The pair’s signing comes days after captain Oscar Forman officially became the first player on the roster.

‘‘It’s good to have Larry and Oscar back. That secures our big spots,’’ Coenraad said .

‘‘Having those two guys back and myself as well, it’s a real positive for the club.

‘‘At the end of the day this is where I wanted to be. It’s an exciting time moving forward.’’

Coenraad has played five seasons with Wollongong, while Davidson has chalked up seven seasons with the club.

‘‘When it all got signed, there was a bit of relief there. I’m happy to be back. I’d miss this place too much if I left,’’ Davidson said.

‘‘We’ve got the same core of guys coming back. I’ve been here a while and I fit in with the Wollongong crowd.’’

The Hawks started selling club memberships and season tickets earlier this week. The first home game is against Townsville on October 10.
