Hull have confirmed the signing of former Brisbane Broncos utility back Steve Michaels for the 2015 Super League campaign.
The 27-year-old has spent the last four years with the Gold Coast Titans but will join up with the Airlie Birds next season having been recommended by former Australia and Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett.
"We are really pleased to get Steve's signature," Hull coach Lee Radford said. "He will undoubtedly add some speed and competition to our backline for 2015.
"Steve has played over 120 NRL first grade games for both the Titans and the Broncos and is still only 27.
"Everyone I've spoken to regarding his personality have said the same, that he is a competitor, which is music to my ears.
"He's both comfortable playing at centre and on the wing so we're hoping the competition for places will bring the best out of our squad and will hopefully ensure everyone is working to their maximum potential.
"In the off season no places are guaranteed any more, I think that hasn't been the case over the last couple of years."
