Hull FC sign union winger Biggs

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.
Biggs has signed a three-year contract until the end of 2016, returning home to the team he’s supported since a boy having been brought up in Beverley.
“I think it is a big challenge in a sport that I’ve never played before, but it’s one that I’m really excited about and I’m feeling positive about working with the coaches moving forwards,” said Biggs.
“Lee (Radford) played a few games for Hull RUFC and all the guys there gave him some great feedback so I’m really looking forward to working with him.
“Adam (club owner Pearson) has outlined how ambitious he is as a person and where he wants to get the club going and I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to be part of that.”
“I don’t know any of the lads personally, but I’m really looking forward to meeting everybody, getting involved with the training, getting my head down and working hard.
“It was great to be there to watch the Challenge Cup final and although we didn’t get the result on the day, I’m really looking forward to being part of the squad and trying to get back there again.”
Biggs has enjoyed a rewarding career in rugby union, including a Powergen Cup winners medal in 2005 with Leeds Tykes, where he became their all-time leading try scorer, as well as representing the England Saxons, England under-21s and featuring as a regular in the England Sevens set-up.
Having made four appearances for Bath already this season, he is a regular at The Rec and a popular figure amongst the fans having been named Supporters’ Player of the Year in 2011/12.
