Hull FC Recruitment For 2016 Part 3, Carlos Tuimavave

Hull FC announced the capture of Samoa international Carlos Tuimavave on 25th July.

The 23-year-old former junior kiwi captain has penned a 3-year-deal at the KC Stadium starting next year leaving NRL outfit Newcastle Knights.

Tuimavave said: “I am excited to be joining Hull next season and the opportunity to play regular first grade football at one of the biggest clubs in Super League.

“While I am focused on finishing the season well at the Knights, I am looking forward to moving my family to England and making a positive contribution to Hull Football Club.

“Hull are a big club with a great fan base and I’m looking forward to getting over there to sample the atmosphere and competition.”

Coach Lee Radford was clearly excited about his new signing, he said: “He has finesse and a bit of X-factor about him, the style of player that can create something from nothing.”

Tuimavave came through the ranks at New Zealand Warriors playing at centre or stand-off in a successful partnership with kiwi superstar Shaun Johnson.

He helped the Warriors to Toyota Cup Grand Final appearances in both 2010 and 2011 and made his NRL debut in 2012.

With first team chances at the Warriors limited he made the switch to Newcastle Knights for this season before opting to try his hand in Super League.
