Talk of new signings and player retentions is rampant right now. Hull FC for one have an abundance of blokes out of contract at the end of 2019.
Ranging from youngsters to the more senior members at the club, some of those names are expected to re-sign, or in some cases either hang up their boots or move on to pastures new.
There’s numerous players contracted until 2020 as well, and in Scott Taylor’s case, right up to 2023.
Those out of contract in 2019
Dean Hadley – Signed a three year deal with Hull KR from 2020. Currently on loan over the river.
Mark Minichiello – Been a great servant for Hull FC and will retire as a legend at the end of the year.
Joe Westerman – We’d like him to stay but it’s more complicated than that. Seems Westy will leave the club for a second time.
Chris Green – Returned from injury well but with rumoured signings might struggle to get a new deal. He’s 29-years-old now and needs to be bang at it in terms of consistency.
Sika Manu – The mister has been a sensational signing for Hull FC but all signs point towards a return home. Sublime player.
Mickey Paea – Been outstanding in recent weeks but if you’re placing a bet he’s another that is likely to leave.
Jack Logan – The worst luck with injuries. Feel for him. Superb Derby hat-trick then goes and injuries his elbow a few weeks later.
Jez Litten – Like Hadley, the young hooker has signed a three year deal with Hull KR from 2020 is currently on loan over the river.
Danny Washbrook – Stated he’ll see how his body feels before making a decision on his future. Can’t see it being at Hull though. Take nothing away from the service he’s given us. He’s been great.
Cameron Scott – Promising youngster but he’s behind a lot of fine players.
Gareth Ellis – Hinted he could go round again. It’s Gareth Ellis. Sign him up.
Jack Sanderson – Finally had surgery on his shoulder. Will probably get another year due to time taken to get his operation done.
Those out of contract in 2020
Jamie Shaul, Carlos Tuimavave, Albert Kelly, Danny Houghton, Matty Dawson-Jones, Jordan Lane, Levy Nzoungou, Liam Harris, Ratu Naulago, Kieran Buchanan, Charlie Graham.
In the not too distant future but Shaul, Tuimavave, Houghton and Lane should be certainties to re-sign. Others pend on form, fitness, preference, development, and other recruitment options.
Those out of contract in 2021
Manu Ma’u, Adam Swift, Josh Jones, Bureta Faraimo, Josh Griffin, Jake Connor, Masimbaashe Matongo, Brad Fash, Lewis Bienek, Andre Savelio, Connor Wynne, Jack Brown
Can we sign the Snake up for life now?
Those out of contract in 2022

Marc Sneyd – Signed a new three-year deal after his heroics in Perpignan. Up there with the best pieces of news we’ve had all year.
