Hull FC have confirmed the signing of former South Sydney Rabbitohs winger Fetuli Talanoa on a one-year-deal.

The Tongan flyer joins the black and whites with an option for 2015, having taken a season out of the game last year whilst he recovered from a life-threatening bout of pneumonia.

Standing at six feet tall and weighing almost 16 stone, the big three-quarter scored 40 tries in his 95 appearances for Souths between 2006 and 2012, and is now back to full fitness and looking forward to the challenge of holding down a regular starting jersey in West Hull.

Talanoa said: “Hull FC have given me an opportunity to play for their club and I’m really excited for it. I can’t wait to get over there and represent the Black and Whites.
