Hull FC refute Connor speculation

Hull FC have hit out at speculation that Huddersfield utility Jake Connor has backfipped on joining their club in 2017.

Hull FC trumped Connor’s signing for next year two weeks ago.

But according to The Yorkshire Post the 21-year old has now had a change of heart and will remain with Huddersfield in 2017.

Hull FC has responded to the news this afternoon: “Jake Connor agreed a deal to join Hull FC for the 2017 season, subject to passing a medical approved by the club.

“This contract is legally binding and states that the player has signed for Hull FC and will join the club from the 1st December 2016 in preparation for the new season.

“If the contract is not fulfilled for any reason then the club will have to pursue legal proceedings for breach of that contract and for the inducement of that breach.

“The club have acted properly and professionally throughout all aspects of the process, working appropriately within the tight parameters of the games’ operational rules and with close guidance from the Rugby Football League.

“Any suggestion other than this by any other party is merely speculation and false conjecture.

“We are disappointed that the club continues to be drawn into public rhetoric of this nature and endeavor to make no further comment until the matter is closed.”

Connor was due to be out of contract at the end of this season.

Ironically Connor’s last game was helping the Giants defeat Hull FC at the John Smith’s Stadium last Thursday.
