Phelps visa finally granted


Hull FC have confirmed that new signing Cameron Phelps has had his visa approved enabling him to join his new club.

The talented Australian full back signed a one-year deal with the club ahead of the new season but has been awaiting clearance from the British High Commission in Canberra.

However, both the player and club have now received confirmation that his visa has been approved and he’s free to make the move back to Super League.

He will now head to England next week and may have an outside chance of joining his new team mates in time to face his former club, Wigan Warriors, next Sunday.

Speaking to, Hull FC Chief Executive James Rule said, “We are delighted that Cameron has received his visa and we look forward to his arrival next week.

“We have worked hard to get his visa application processed as quickly as we could and have flights on standby, so we’ll look to get him into the country as soon as possible once his passport is returned to him from Canberra.”

He added, “Fans will obviously want to know when he will make his debut and there’s an obvious irony in the time of his arrival, however, we won’t be looking to put too much pressure on Cameron.

“We’ll look to get him on a plane as soon as possible and then Richard and the coaching staff will be able to review his condition as soon as he arrives.

“He has been training hard in Australia and has been looking through our playbook, so I am sure his first appearance in Black and White won’t be too far away.”
