Scott Taylor inks four-year deal at Hull FC

Hull FC have confirmed that Scott Taylor will be joining them from Wigan on a four-year deal from 2016.

The former Hull KR man is currently on a season-long loan deal at Salford from the Warriors.

The Hull-born 24-year-old was a boyhood Hull FC fan, and he is now looking forward to wearing the famous Black and White jersey next year.

“I’ve known ‘Radders’ (Hull coach Lee Radford) for a while now and we have been in contact a lot,” he told Hull FC‘s official website.

“He is a really good bloke and we have a close relationship. He was another big reason why the move was right for me and made it an even easier decision.

“There’s already a lot of quality forwards in the squad and I’m really excited about joining up with the pack.

“I know a lot of the lads already and I am really looking forward to teaming up with them.

“I’ve put in some big minutes this year and that’s what I want to do at Hull. I want to be in the team, week in week out putting my body on the line for the club.”

Taylor hopes that the move can put him back into international contention.

“Hopefully I can get myself back in the England set-up,” he added.

“Every kid dreams of playing for their country and now that I’ve already had a taste I’m even more determined to cement my place in the national squad.

“I’ve played for them once already and I just missed the cut for the Four Nations squad.

“I’ll be focusing on impressing this year with Salford and then with the Black and Whites in 2016.”
