Tuimavave expected to arrive in Hull tonight

Hull FC coach Lee Radford has revealed that the last of the club’s new signings to arrive in the United Kingdom will land on Wednesday night.

Carlos Tuimavave is the final piece of Radford’s jigsaw for 2016, and he will land in Hull this evening (Wednesday) to join up with his new teammates on Thursday.

FC have signed a number of big names from the NRL for 2016 including the likes of Frank Pritchard and Mahe Fonua, and Radford admits the group has come together how he expected ahead of a big year for the Black and Whites next year.

“Carlos lands on Wednesday night,” Radford revealed.

“He’ll be here Thursday but he’ll have just come off a plane, and he’s the last one through the door. Sika and Mahe are here as well, they’ve been in and amongst things for a couple of weeks now so it’s progressing well.

“The group was tight-knit anyway; we’ve not had many ins and outs and the players that have been here for a few weeks now have settled in really well. With the new faces here we’re getting close to having that full squad out on the field.”
