Hull FC have completed the signing of Tom Biggs from Aviva Premiership side Bath, after the 29-year-old penned a three-year deal.
The Black and Whites have been looking to fill the gap created by the departure of England winger Tom Briscoe, and believe Biggs is the man to do just that.
Biggs is set to see the season out with Bath, where he has been since 2010, before switching codes and says he is looking forward to a fresh challenge in Super League.
“Hull FC approached me and I’m very excited to have the chance to try my hand at league, and especially with my local club,” said Biggs.
“I think it is a big challenge in a sport that I’ve never played before but it’s one that I’m really excited about and I’m feeling positive about working with the coaches moving forwards.”
Hull coach Lee Radford is also delighted with the capture of Biggs, who was raised in Beverley and supports the Black and Whites.
“Tom looked very comfortable and competent playing in rugby union but it was his enthusiasm about the prospect of leaving that to join Hull FC and the challenge in store that excited me.
“He could quite easily remain set on his current deal in union, but he was keen to have the opportunity to test himself in rugby league and play for us.
“He is a local lad and an FC supporter and we’re hoping we can nurture that enthusiasm to help him make a positive transition into our sport, which I am sure he will excel in.”
