As the title says, I am trying to show that a uniquely $3$-edge-colourable $3$-regular graph $G$ with edge-chromatic number $3$ has exactly $3$ Hamiltonian cycles.
I've managed to show the existence of three Hamiltonian cycles as follows: pick any $3$-colouring of the edges of $G$, then deleting the edges of a single colour, the resulting graph $G_1$ is $2$-regular, and hence its connected components are cycles. If there is more than one component, then swapping the colours in a single component of $G_1$ induces a different $3$-colouring of $G$, which is a contradiction; hence $G_1$ is a single cycle, and it is a Hamiltonian cycle on $G$.
I'm having trouble proving that the three Hamiltonian cycles I've found are unique, though. Let $C$ be a Hamiltonian cycle on $G$; I was thinking of trying to $2$-colour $C$ and then extend that to a $3$-colouring of $G$. If that can be done, then I think that by uniqueness of $3$-colourings, it follows that $C$ is one of the Hamiltonian cycles I've found earlier, but I'm having trouble constructing the $2$-colouring of $C$.
Any help is appreciated!
