Hull FC prop Scott Taylor has signed a new FIVE year contract.
Already announcing new deals for Danny Washbrook and Josh Bowden, plus a first professional deal for Jack Brown, Taylor is the fourth placer to extend his contract this week.
But this is the most prestigious one, a Hull-born lad that just gets it and one that doesn’t see his future anywhere else.
“This is my team that I’ve grown up with. I’ve never been as happy in my career as I am now. I love playing for my hometown club and there is nowhere else I want to be,” Taylor told the clubs official website.
“People talk about there being other options out there, but it doesn’t interest me.
“This is the place that is best for me. I know that I will play my best rugby here, and that’s the reason I have signed again. When you are happy, you play good rugby.”
It’s been revealed by the club that Tag had options elsewhere, but Hull FC is where his future lies – shown by the length of his new deal.
“I wanted to show how committed I was to the cause here by signing a long-term deal,” he continued.
“It is going to be a big five years of my life – I want us to be lifting a Grand Final trophy during the next five years, challenging for a spot in the top four every year and putting some good cup runs together.”
“You can see the direction the club is heading in by looking at the boys that have signed deals this year. They’re looking after players who are performing well.
“We have a young team overall, and the right amount of senior blokes in there too. It’s good to keep a low turnover of players every year, and that will help us build.”
