Dykes signs with Hull

Cronulla five-eighth Adam Dykes has agreed to a two-year deal with English Super League club Hull FC.

Hull announced the signing on their website today, just a day after Cronulla confirmed that the veteran playmaker would be quitting the NRL at the end of the 2007 season. The 30-year-old, who has played over 200 games in the NRL with both Cronulla and Parramatta, is expected line up in the halves alongside Great Britain international Richard Horne.

Dykes had been offered a new two-year deal to remain at Cronulla but the Sharks now are believed to be focussing on retaining his halves partner Brett Kimmorley.
