Hull sign Denive Balmforth


Recommended Posts

Hull FC have paid a fee to sign Denive Balmforth from Warrington’s academy. Don’t really know much about him, but it’s claimed he’s highly rated. I guess being behind two international hookers in the pecking order means he wouldn’t get many chances at the HJ.

Not sure how much Hull have paid.

He is already an international in his age group.  

Only 18 and I’m amazed Wire let him go.  Excellent acquisition and one for the future.

Must be decent to go for a fee at that age. Is he from that neck of the woods?

Leeds.  I seem to remember reading he wanted to be closer to home.  Maybe the quieter run across to Hull is preferable to the 62?

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

If biff, bam &bash is his only attribute then he won’t make it as a hooker, being tough is a great attribute but SL isn’t age group rugby and the big kid doesn’t always score try’s and win MotM awards.

I sincerely hope he’s got more to his game than that video shows, he’ll need some guile, vision and great core skill to make it as a 9
