Talanoa signs new Hull deal

Hull FC have extended the contract of winger Fetuli Talanoa following his impressive debut season in Super League.

The 26-year-old joined the Airlie Birds last November on a 12-month deal and has extended his stay to at least the end of the Super League 2015 campaign.

The former South Sydney outside back is one of only two players to have played in all 19 Super League fixtures this year and coach Lee Radford is delighted to retain his services.

"He has been a real find for us this season and I don't think there is a better winger in the competition at finding your side a ruck win when he is returning the ball," he said.

"He came to us as a bit of a gamble but one that has certainly paid off. He is the type of player you want to get your sets rolling and he is the type of winger that your forwards can really appreciate."
