Hull have signed Fiji powerhouse Kane Evans from NRL side New Zealand Warriors on a two-year deal.
The 29-year-old prop has made 130 NRL appearances for Sydney Roosters, Parramatta Eels and the Warriors.
Evans has won 13 caps for Fiji and played in two World Cups. He says he has always wanted to play in Super League.
He said: “To have signed my deal and to be on my way over there soon is a massive opportunity for me. I can’t wait to get started with the club.
“It is a new test for me to challenge myself against some of the big names on the other side of the world.
“I am looking forward to making home at Hull FC having heard a lot of good things about the club and the city.”
Hull boss delighted with Kane Evans capture
Hull coach Brett Hodgson added: “Kane is a big unit. His addition to our squad brings another level of power, aggression and size next season. We’re pleased to have another key player tied down for 2022.
“He’s got a wealth of experience having played consistently in the NRL for the best part of a decade. And a competitive streak which is clear to see when he takes to the field.
“He also brings an impressive offload game which can help us develop our second phase of attack further and threaten opposition teams across the park.”
Evans becomes Hull’s third signing for 2022. The Black and Whites have already confirmed the captures of Darnell McIntosh and Joe Lovodua.
