Papua New Guinea’s Treigh Stewart Joins Hull FC for Super League Challenge

Papua New Guinea Representative Treigh Stewart Eager to Embrace Super League Challenge at Hull FC

Treigh Stewart, the Papua New Guinea representative, is eagerly anticipating the opportunity to showcase his skills in the Super League, having joined Hull FC as one of their two new overseas signings.

The 23-year-old full-back, hailing from New South Wales, has been a regular for the Brisbane Tigers in the Queensland Cup this season, recording seven assists in 12 appearances. Stewart, who can also slot into the halves, represented his heritage when featuring for the PNG Prime Minister’s XIII against an Australian equivalent last year.

“It’s a big step for myself to come over to play in Super League, but it’s something I’m excited for. To be able to make my first-grade debut at some stage is going to be pretty big for me.”

Alongside Stewart, Hull FC have also signed Jed Cartwright, the son of incoming Black & Whites head coach John Cartwright, who will take charge from 2025. The 27-year-old second-rower joins from the NRL’s Newcastle Knights, where he has amassed 34 first-grade appearances.

“I’m very excited to have the opportunity to move over to England and join Hull FC. The body’s feeling good, so I’m ready to rip in when I arrive in England. A tough, physical game is what I’m expecting in Super League judging by the feedback I have received from some of the boys who’ve played over there at the Knights.”

Both Stewart and Cartwright have penned 18-month deals, running until the end of the 2025 season, and are expected to land in the UK over the next couple of weeks.
