No surprise Gareth Ellis contract talks are on hold at Hull FC

Gareth Ellis' contract talks at Hull FC are on hold, for a couple of reasons I suspect, writes Paul Cooke. Firstly, I'm not sure Ellis being the type of player and professional he is would welcome any talks on his future when he isn't contributing on the field, where he desperately wants to be with his team. Secondly, the club must do the right thing regarding an injured player and assess the risk it carries with a new contract, especially that of a high-earning player. It's a business as...

Manu was out of sorts on Hull's right edge, with the 30-year-old still struggling from an ankle issue sustained last month during the 34-10 win over Warrington Wolves. He was suspended for two matches for an incident in the same...

Leigh expecting Hull FC backlash after St Helens debacle

AS we enter an extremely challenging period of the season it's difficult to assess any team. Injuries and fatigue will play an enormous part in results in the coming month, writes Paul Cooke. Already we are seeing squads being spread thinly, injuries are mounting up and the players are being asked to play more rugby league than ever. Hull FC, like many others, have injury concerns, already without Mahe Fonua, Fetuli Talanoa, Jake Connor and Gareth Ellis they have over a torrid weekend...

It's not time for RFL to expand the game further just yet

Paul Cooke gives his take on the news more teams in North America are looking at Toronto and considering setting up an expansion team. Toronto Wolfpack are, as predicted, sailing through League One with little or no opposition capable of getting close to them. A team on paper which would likely push for the Championship top four in 2017 is setting League One alight. It's stirring up interest from North America according to the Rugby Football League. It is of little surprise, given the free...

Another heavy loss shows who are Hull FC's most important players

Where do we start? Hull FC were awful and St Helens were very good. Saints had been pretty terrible themselves of late and I think again the result highlights the tightness of the Super League competition, writes Craig Murdock. Hull looked like a team that were patched up to me. Albert Kelly wasn't the player we've seen this season, Marc Sneyd looks like he's really struggling with that toe injury and Sika Manu was a little bit off. Apart from Mark Minichiello, across the board Hull were well...

Hull FC talking points: Trying to make sense of that

Hull FC reporter Paul Clarke takes a look at the key talking points to come out of the Black and Whites' 45-0 defeat to St Helens at the Magic Weekend. Hull soft again Not for the first time this season, Hull's defence was woeful. Initial contact was lacklustre and on their own line, Lee Radford's men were inept. This follows similar showings against Salford Red Devils and Leeds Rhinos earlier this season. Whilst FC might have plenty of strong characters in the team, it's not the first time this...

The Black and Whites may have been kitted out in Hulk jerseys for the festival of rugby league in Newcastle, but Lee Radford's men were far from imposing.
