Hull FC swoop for Seymour

Hull FC have swooped to sign talented Australian half back Brett Seymour on a three-year deal.

Th 26-year-old New Zealand Warriors star, who has attracted interest from Bradford and Harlequins, will join up with his new team mates next season, alongside fellow new signings Wake McKinnon, Jamie Ellis and current team mate Aaron Heremaia.

Seymour stated “I didn’t want to come to England when I was past my use by date. I have had ten years in the NRL and I’m pretty well seasoned, the body feels great still and I really want to make a go of my chance in Super League, so that was the reason behind joining an ambitious club like Hull.

“I have had some great feedback about the club, the players and the coaches and where they went to be heading and people can’t speak more highly of the place so I can’t wait to get there.

“Just watching the Exiles game the other day, you could see what a tight contest it was with some great players on show and the league is improving all the time with a good mix of home and overseas players and I haven’t heard a bad word said about the comp. I am really looking forward to it.”

Hull FC coach Richard Agar is delighted to have landed a player with real ability:

“Brett is a very talented player with a sharp football brain. He possesses a wide array of skills and a great kicking game.

“He will bring confidence and quality into our halves and is a player coming into his prime. He is very excited about getting here and he is an integral part of our plans for 2012. He is a major capture for us.”
