Hull FC have signed Bath rugby union winger Tom Biggs. The 29-year-old, who was originally spotted when a schoolboy at Hymers College, says it’s a dream come true.

I would class the next three seasons as being in the future, so yes.

 

(Must try harder  :nono: )

Good solid signing for me, wing will be a lot easier to adjust to, welcome to the club Tom.

I hate that word "solid" when it comes to talking about signed players.  :(

With luck the first point of business will be a decent haircut.

Andy Powell and Tom Biggs... if this was in the other direction, the press would be calling it a 'flood'.

Seems a decent enough signing, if he adjusts quickly then he could be a good asset for Hull.

32 tries in 127 union appearances.

 

Seems light but that might not be bad in union, I dunno.

That's not such a bad haul to be fair.

 

I think it was last season (12/13) that the top AP try scorer had 11 tries to his name!

Never heard of him, but then I was trying to think of a current union player I had heard of, other than the ex leaguies - is there a TUilagi? A Cockerill? A Moody?
The timing is good - made the front page of the BBC web site - nice subliminal message. Makes you wonder whether Sally Bolton is pulling the strings for the whole of the sporting world.

They lost Briscoe so they need a winger.

Local union playing winger with long blonde hair.

 

He's the new Howard Firth.

I think it only needs one more to be upgraded to defcon 'exodus'.

His try to game ratio was much high at Newcastle and Leeds
