Pritchard nearing Hull FC exit

Frank Pritchard’s move away from Hull FC is almost complete, with Australian media claiming the back-rower has agreed a deal with Parramatta Eels.

The 32-year-old’s stay at the KCOM Stadium is set to end prematurely, having only spent one year at the club since becoming their marquee player ahead of 2016.

After a good start to life in Super League, Pritchard failed to maintain his form in the second-half of the season. He made 26 appearances for the club.

It is being reported that ‘The Tank’ has signed a one-year deal with the Eels where Pritchard’s brother Kaysa is currently under contract. Pritchard is thought to have arrived in Australia to finalise the deal, after coming to an agreement over his release from the Challenge Cup winners.
