Hull FC ace Bureta Faraimo loving life in England

Drew Darbyshire

USA star Bureta Faraimo is well and truly settled into life at Hull FC and he loves the English culture, including fish and chips.

The 27-year-old has been living in England for five years now after he joined Hull FC from New Zealand Warriors in the off-season.

Faraimo brings a blockbusting style of play on the wing and has already scored four tries for the Black and Whites.

And he is loving life in England right now.

He told “I actually went to Bridlington a couple of weeks ago, it was pretty foggy and then it started raining, I could only see about two metres in front of me!

“But I had a really nice fish and chips, which I had never tried before, so it was great to try that out. I’ll definitely be having that again.

“Thankfully the sun has come out a little bit more the past week, so hopefully I can do some more exploring with my family in the nicer weather.”

Faraimo’s family have also taken to East Yorkshire like a duck to water, with some of his children joining local amateur club Cottingham Tigers.

And he has heaped praise on the local residents for being so friendly.

The New-Zealand born star added: “I can say that the English people are very welcoming.

“When I first got here, I had a neighbour who knocked on my door and welcomed me to the neighbourhood. I thought that only happens in movies!

“I have a nine-year-old daughter and she plays for Cottingham Tigers Under-10s and I have also got another girl who plays for the Under-8s.

“They both love the sport, being in the team environment and it’s something to keep me busy as well.”
