The player is apparently a backrower, and Hull could be in contention for his signature with other clubs.
“Hopefully we’ll have another back-rower over the line over the next 24 hours of the same calibre as Gareth Ellis,” he told the Hull Daily Mail.
“He’s a very experienced international from the NRL. We’re fighting off a bit of competition from clubs over there, some very successful clubs over recent years.
“So if we get him, it’ll be a real major coup.”
