Gareth Ellis signs with Hull

11:56 am on 23 March 2012

Wests Tigers' English backrower Gareth Ellis will join Hull FC for next year's English Super League season.

Ellis, who has won the Tigers' players of the year in all three of his seasons with the joint venture club, announced last month he would return home after seeking an early release from his contract in Australia.

Ellis will link up with his former Tigers assistant coach Peter Gentle and the Australian believes the forward's signing is a huge coup for the club.
