Hull FC half-back Jordan Rankin insists he is good enough to force his way into Lee Radford’s first team squad – and says that as well as challenging for half-back, he can compete in a number of other positions, too.
Rankin enjoyed a strong first season at the Black and Whites, missing only a handful of games after arriving at the club from NRL side Gold Coast Titans.
And Rankin told the Hull Daily Mail that although it will be tough to get into the side following the arrivals of Leon Pryce and Marc Sneyd, Rankin has full belief in his ability – and says that he’s targeting a few areas where he can break into the squad in 2015.
“I believe my ability will get me in the 17 and that I can do a job for the team, that’s how you have to see it,” Rankin said.
“It’s a dog eat dog world and that’s how I have to see it. I have certain goals I have set myself and I have full intention of fulfilling every single goal I have set myself.
“I can play in a number of positions and I feel comfortable in any position.
“I’m not saying I’m after the full-back role, what I am saying is whether you are Marc Sneyd, Jamie Shaul or Leon Pryce it doesn’t matter, all I can do is back myself and what I can do. I feel I have only reached the start of what I can do and there is so much more I can bring to this side.”
