Brad Dwyer explains why pre-season has been “difficult” as he remains keen to impress at Hull FC

Brad Dwyer is one of five new faces through the door at Hull FC but the former Warrington Wolves and Leeds Rhinos hooker will have to beat a lot of competition to the number nine spot.

Veteran Danny Houghton still holds the number nine shirt whilst Joe Lovodua can also play there.

Dwyer meanwhile has taken on the 33 shirt for the new season as he begins a one year deal with the club after leaving Leeds following a five year stint at Headingley which saw him lift the Challenge Cup in 2020.

Dwyer though has found it “difficult” in pre-season as he misses playing and is determined to ghet out there and impress.

“I think I’m going to get a run out against Sheffield, so I’m really looking forward to that and pulling a Hull jersey on for the first time,” he said on the club’s website.

“Pre-season is a difficult time because you want to impress and you endure such a long time without any matches, and it’s only really in the matches where you can truly impress.

“But now we’re getting to that point where we have a couple of games on the horizon, I’m really excited for it.

“Rugby League is what I make a living out of, so there’s not a great deal to look forward to if you’ve no game at the weekend!

“There’s a big trait in me that I’m hellbent on impressing. So if there’s no games to impress in, it can be a bit of a frustrating time.

“But the most exciting thing for me is knowing that we’re nearly at that stage where I have the opportunity to go out there and impress.”
