Fellous: Heading to Hull

Sky Bet

France forward Adel Fellous has joined injury-hit Hull FC on loan until the end of March.

"Adel will be with us until the end of March and that means he will be available to play against his former club, Les Catalans."
James Rule Quotes of the week

The 30-year-old Toulouse star was released by Catalans Dragons at the end of last season and has sacrificed a potential Carnegie Challenge Cup run to make a brief return to Super League.

He is set to make his debut against Wakefield Wildcats on Friday night, with Airlie Birds forwards Garreth Carvell (knee), Willie Manu (jaw) and Ewan Dowes (knee) all missing through injury.

Chief executive James Rule said: "With three top forwards out through injury we just felt we need some extra strengthening with Easter coming up.

"Adel will be with us until the end of March and that means he will be available to play against his former club, Les Catalans."

Hull head to Perpignan on March 24 and Fellous could also be available for the trip to Wigan Warriors four days later if required.
