Hull cancel Byrne contract

Hull have cancelled the contract of injured utility back Todd Byrne.

Byrne, 30, suffered a season-ending knee injury in Hull’s win over Celtic Crusaders in February, and with his contract due to expire at the end of this season, he has now reached a settlement to leave the club.

Byrne said: “I have loved every minute of my time at Hull FC and I leave with fond memories of the club, the city and the people.”

The former Sydney Roosters player joined Hull from New Zealand Warriors last year and scored six tries in 22 appearances.

Byrne, who underwent a knee reconstruction, scored six tries in 22 appearances for the club after moving from New Zealand Warriors last season.

Chief executive James Rule said: “Todd has been an outstanding ambassador for Hull FC, both on and off the field.

“On behalf of our fans, staff, coaches and players I wish to thank him for his service to Hull FC and to wish him the best of luck in the future.”

Hull now have a free quota spot to make an overseas signing.
