Hull FC Seeks Marquee Signing Jayden Sullivan to Rebuild for 2025 Season

As Hull FC looks to rebound from a challenging 2024 campaign, the club has turned its attention to bolstering their roster for the upcoming 2025 season. Following the appointment of John Cartwright as the new head coach on a three-year deal, the Black and Whites are now reportedly in pursuit of NRL star Jayden Sullivan to strengthen their halves pairing.

The 2024 season saw Hull FC experiment with New Zealand hooker Nu Brown in the halves, but that arrangement was short-lived due to compassionate grounds leading to Brown’s immediate release. Since then, the club has brought in Ben Reynolds on loan from local rivals Hull KR, yet the hunt for a long-term solution continues.

“According to Jenna Brooks of Sky Sports, Hull FC are now ‘seriously considering’ the signing of Jayden Sullivan, who would command a significant salary of around £180,000 per year. This would make Sullivan a marquee addition, joining the likes of John Asiata, who is also reported to be earning £220,000 as one of the club’s top signings.”

The pursuit of Sullivan comes as Wests Tigers CEO Shane Richardson is said to be in the UK, exploring opportunities to offload players and free up space under the salary cap. Hull KR are also rumored to be monitoring the availability of Wests Tigers’ centre or winger Brent Naden.

For Hull FC, the potential acquisition of Jayden Sullivan would mark a significant step in their rebuilding process as they look to bounce back from a difficult 2024 season and establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the 2025 rugby league campaign.
