Griffin targets England place

Hull FC centre Josh Griffin is hoping to use his move from Salford to the Airlie Birds to kickstart a potential England career.

Griffin would like the squad as a whole to emulate their trophy winning exploits last season, but he admits that playing for a more successful club will do his international prospects no harm.

“I’ve got team targets, I want us to repeat the success of this year and maybe go one step further,” he told his new club’s official website.

“I’ve got my individual goals as well – I want to be pushing for the England spot for next year’s World Cup.”

Griffin is also looking forward to working with Kirk Yeaman, whose former number four shirt he will be wearing in 2017.

“I used to watch Kirk when I was younger, and to have him on the coaching staff is obviously a boost for myself,” he said.
