Tickle and Briscoe to leave Hull FC

41 posts in this topic

Danny Tickle is signed and sealed to Widnes next year according to HDM, though he has been injury prone the last couple of seasons he has been a great servant to the club and I wish him well across the pennines.

Like Tickle the rumour mill has been going for months about were Tom is going to end up, Aus, RU with Leeds looking now the likely destination.I would of liked him to had a go in Aus but it looks like the deal has fell through.It looks as if we pulled an improved offer and have spent the money on signing someone else

He has lost his England wing spot and his form over the last couple of years has not lived up to his earlier seasons and with Tom Lineham exploding on the scene at the club he possibly thinks a fresh start is needed

so hull have missed out on the transfer fee we offered for danny last season by being greedy and upping the price? now we have him for nothing......would give him a pay as you play deal though until he proves his fitness.

I can imagine Leeds will be offloading a couple of players to for Briscoe under the 'rigid' salary structure.

Tickle has already agreed a contract with Widnes that Hull FC admit they couldn't come anywhere near matching so your "pay as you play deal", which would have been the way to go, now doesn't come into the equation.

You're probably right when you say we should have got a transfer fee for him last year though, because right now, I've just about forgotten what he looks like.

£120000 a year is a lot to pay a winger if the report is true then your right if he has turned that down then Leeds have some cap adjusting to do or are they losing a big earner themselves ?

Or they've had a player on their books that they wanted on their books and had the value of him in their squad.

tickle has made no secret of his desire to return to gods county from yawkshure, this is arguably the most protracted signing in the history of super league as it was first mooted before the kevin brown signing.

Your right and Hull should of let him go because as OF said he's been blighted by injury ever since, if he's stays fit a great signing for Widnes but that's a big if if his current fitness is anything to go by.

I hope he goes well because at one point he was one of the best forwards in the country

Are there any rumoured replacements for Briscoe? I've heard all about him leaving the past few months, and that Lineham will supercede him, but will the starting wings look like Lineham and Crookes with reserves coming from squad depth?

I think we signed Crookes because we knew Briscoe was off so I would say he is going to be his natural replacement.We need replacements in the forwards for next year with Tickle, O'Meley and Galea all leaving and I think that is were the money is going to be spent.Hull gave Briscoe long enough to accept the deal and more, I think he thought the Aussie clubs would come calling he may still end up there but Leeds look favourites.

Briscoe rumoured to have signed a 4 or 5 year deal for Leeds.

Quite a few rumours of Leeds losing players to the NRL.

They can have Reece Lyne back for and a small fee.

FC have a fine back 5 even without Briscoe. He's a terrific player though. As long as he stays in our game, good luck to him.

If Leeds can hang on to the players they've got, the addition of Tom Briscoe would give you one heck of a back five next season.

Who are some of the rumours?

I've been disappointed with Briscoe over the last couple of seasons; he doesn't seem to have kicked on as much as I'd have expected. Did you expect more from him?

To be honest, yes I did. I've given him the benefit of the doubt though and put it largely down to the uncertainty over his future.

 

I think he's a big loss for us and could still go on to become the best British winger in the game (after Tom Lineham of course  ;) ).

Briscoe has dropped behind Hall and Charnley in the pecking order, he seems to have stalled in his development. He has come under some criticism from section of the Hull fans about his lack of defending kicks and work rate, the fact that Linehams playing out of his skin doesn't help him.I would love him to stay, a lethal player at times I wish him well when he moves on.

He's had his head turned. He's clearly not been focused on playing for us since the NRL rumours started midseason last year.

If Hull can't afford him under the cap, it makes you wonder how Leeds can.

Leeds have more home grown / internationals etc that qualify them for Salary Cap uplifts. So buy in quality every time they need to
