7 Hull FC players set to leave ahead of 2025 – as things stand

Hull FC Director of Rugby Richie Myler.

We’re more than halfway through the 2024 Super League season and it’s fair to say Hull FC have a firm eye on the 2025 campaign. The Black and Whites have struggled through the campaign but with John Cartwright arriving at the MKM Stadium in time for next season, changes are on the way.

The club have already announced a host of new signings that will link up with the East Yorkshire outfit over the winter and it seems more additions will come over the next few months. However, the Black and Whites still have decisions to make when it comes to the futures of a number of key individuals. Here’s a look at those who are entering the final few months of their FC deals.

Danny Houghton

The veteran will be 36 years old by the time next season rolls around and he has already hinted that this season could be his last as a player. However, Houghton is in charge of his own destiny and he’ll make his own decision come the end of the campaign whether to carry on or not, as he did last season.

He’s made 12 outings this time around to surpass 400 Super League appearances and having made 433 tackles over the course of the campaign, he’s still as energetic as ever.

Liam Sutcliffe

Sutcliffe has spent two seasons with Hull, but this one will be his last with the player set to join up with Huddersfield Giants for the 2025 campaign. The 29-year-old has been a consistent performer during his time in East Yorkshire, but it’s fair to say poor results have made his spell at the club a struggle.

Hull FC quiz: Who are these former Super League players?

1 of 10


Mitieli Vulikijapani

The 30-year-old winger was first picked up by Hull back in April 2021 and while he has never been considered to be a regular starter, the Fijian has provided strength in depth on the flanks. He hasn’t featured this season due to injury, though, and the club will be mulling over the pros and cons of keeping him on.

Charlie Severs

Shoulder injuries have probably got the best of Severs’ career to date with the back-rower seeing his progress severely restricted. He has made three appearances for the Black and Whites and while he did impress during a loan spell at York earlier this season, he hasn’t quite managed to force his way into the Hull fold. He’s always been highly rated at the MKM Stadium, but as his 21st birthday approaches a decision will have to be made, one way or the other.

Cam Scott

Scott is living proof that hard work and perseverance pay off. The 24-year-old made his debut for the Black and Whites in 2018 but it wasn’t until last season when he really became a key member of the squad, with 24 appearances and seven tries coming.

He’s made 73 outings for the club in total, getting over the line on 15 occasions but this season will be his last at the MKM. Scott has taken up a two-year deal with Wakefield and will be representing the resurgent West Yorkshire outfit from next season.

Carlos Tuimavave

Tuimavave has been such a fantastic servant to the club during his nine seasons in black and white, but he will be 33 by the time next season kicks off and the club have a tough decision to make. The centre is one of the leaders within camp but his nationality will leave Hull contemplating whether they can fill their overseas quota in a different way. Tuimavave has made 174 appearances for Hull but injuries have severely restricted his game time this season.

Joe Cator

Like Tuimavave, Cator’s game time has been restricted so far this season through injury. When he’s fit and firing on all cylinders he’s a key man for the Black and Whites, there’s no doubt about it, but the forward has just lacked the fortune needed to avoid injury and build up some real traction for his boyhood club. Given his talent and ties to the club, securing his future makes a certain amount of sense for the Black and Whites, it’s fair to say.
