Rugby League: Hull FC reveal squad line-up
Back-to-back Challenge Cup winners Hull FC have revealed their squad numbers for the 2018 Betfred Super League season. Mickey Paea, who returns to the club after a two-year stint in the NRL with Newcastle Knights, takes number 23 whilst fellow new recruit Bureta Faraimo will wear number two.
Jordan Abdull, who’s back at the club following a season-long loan spell with Hull Kingston Rovers, takes number 16, having played a pivotal role in their promotion back to Super League. Dean Hadley, who also returns after a successful loan stint with Wakefield Trinity last season, retains number 11 having been handed that number ahead of the 2017 campaign.
Prop Josh Bowden takes over number 13 following the retirement of back-to-back Cup-winning captain Gareth Ellis, who’s become the club’s football manager. Jez Litten, who will link up with Richard Horne’s Doncaster for the 2018 season on loan, takes up Bowden’s former number 22.
Hull FC’s Young Player of the Year Brad Fash moves up to 20 after a strong season, making over 20 appearances for the Black and Whites.
