Kelly pens new Hull deal

Hull FC half-back Albert Kelly has signed a one-year contract extension which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2018 season.

The former Gold Coast Titan has scored nine tries in eight appearances for the Airlie Birds, making him the joint second try scorer in Super League, and has assisted three.

The 26-year-old, who penned a one-year deal in the off-season, has been a revelation since arriving at the beginning of the season, forming a strong partnership with scrum-half Marc Sneyd.

Kelly said: “I’m very pleased to have signed my new deal. My girls are happy, I’m happy and I’m really excited for what’s to come.

“It was a no brainer to extend my contract here. I like to think that I’ve been playing well recently and I’m in a happy place. It was really a no brainer to go anywhere else.

“I like to think I’m getting back to my best form and with another year under my belt, I think I can get better.

“I want for us to be competitive and to be challenging for all three pieces of silverware on offer and make sure that we’re fighting to be up there towards the top.”
