Woolford unlikely to go
to Hull, Swain to stay

Hull captain Richard Swain is set to put off retirement and play another season in the English Super League following the arrival of new head coach Peter Sharp, throwing doubt over Canberra hooker Simon Woolford's rumoured move to Hull.

Former New Zealand Test hooker Swain, 31, is out of contract at the end of the season and was set to return home to Australia. But he told a news conference in Hull he was ready to sign another 12-month deal to end his career under the former NRL coach.
