Reports: Pritchard to sign deal with Hull FC

Reports in Australia suggest that Hull FC are about to land a major coup for next season, snapping up Canterbury Bulldogs vice-captain Frank Pritchard.

Pritchard is under contract for 2016, but are reporting that he has been granted a release from the final year of his deal to take up a contract with the Black and Whites.

The 31-year-old has been with Canterbury since the start of 2011, and would represent a major attraction for Super League should he come to England.

The forward is a former New Zealand international, and would bring with him a wealth of experience for 2016 for Lee Radford’s side.
