Hull FC have announced the signing of Matty Dawson-Jones on a two year contract.

The outside back, who can play in both the centre and wing positions, joins from Leigh having come through the ranks at St Helens.

Dawson-Jones scored a total of 41 tries in 56 games for the Centurions, including two against Hull in Super League back in 2017.

He speaks well, having told the clubs official website, “I’m coming here with a point to prove and I jumped at the opportunity play for Hull.

“As soon as I heard they were interested in me it was only a matter of time, once I had spoken with the club I didn’t want to go anywhere. It was a no brainer.

“They’ve got some good people here, a really good setup and the history and fan base speaks for itself.

“I have spoken to a couple of the boys who have played at Hull and they all spoke very highly of the club and the atmosphere, so I’m really excited for that.”

As usual we’ll pass judgement once the player has actually pulled on the shirt but if you’re looking for one word that sums up Hull FC right now in terms of philosophy, recruitment, blah blah blah, then it’s definitely underwhelming.

That’s not neccesary a reflection on the player in question himself, who at 28-years-old looks like a grafter and will hopefully fit into the Radford regime.
