Eamon O’Carroll signs for Hull


Wigan Warriors prop forward Eamon O’Carroll has signed for Hull FC on a three-year-deal.

The 24-yea-old Ireland International is strong in both attack and defence and becomes Hull’s fifth signing ahead of the 2012 campaign.

Speaking on the deal, O’Carroll said: “To be joining a club like Hull FC is massive. They are a huge club with a great history and a great fan base and I am very privileged to be joining them,” he said.

“I am looking forward to getting over there and getting into pre-season and it is a move that really excites me, so I can’t wait to get started.

“They are a club with big ambitions and hopefully I can play my part in helping them achieve some of those.”

The prop played all three games for Ireland in the 2008 World Cup in Australia.
