Hull FC have handed winger Bureta Faraimo a new two-year deal.

The 28-year-old – who played for New Zealand Warriors and Parramatta Eels in the NRL – has scored 25 tries in 45 appearances since arriving at Hull in 2018.

A USA international, Faraimo will remain at the KCOM Stadium until at least the end of the 2021 season.

Faraimo commented: “I’m really happy to get the deal over the line.

“The aim now is to win trophies with the club. I believe we’re on the right path at the moment to do that.

“I love it here. When I joined, the players and the coaching staff made me feel really welcome and that helped me settle in.

“Hull has a great community. My family love it here which made the decision to stay much easier.”

Hull coach Lee Radford added: “I’m really pleased that he has decided to stay with the club.

“He’s been a great signing since his arrival 18 months ago, and he’s hitting some really impressive form of late. He’s only going to improve as time goes by too.

“He’s proven that he is a quality finisher. Going forward he is massive for us aswell. And not only is he a great asset on the field, he’s a top bloke off the field too and well-loved in the group. He’s a great guy to have around the place.

“Bureta has really taken to the culture of the place and bought into what this club is about. He’s turned out to be a real fans favourite.”
