Off contract Wests Tigers’ fullback Wade McKinnon has signed a three-year deal to join English Super League club Hull FC next year.
The Tigers secured McKinnon last year after the fullback was granted an early release from his contract at the the New Zealand Warriors. McKinnon only played six games for the Tigers though due to a hamstring injury.
There have been rumours that young Tigers star Tim Moltzen was being shopped around but with the loss of McKinnon, his chances of staying with the team improve greatly. Both Moltzen and off contract youngster Mitch Brown, will be vying for the vacated spot.
McKinnon has also played for the South Sydney Rabbitohs and Parramatta Eels.
