Brett Hodgson explains why he has signed new NRL utility man

Hull FC announced the signing of Joe Lovodua last night on a one-year deal from South Sydney Rabbitohs.

And, for the Black and Whites’ head coach Brett Hodgson, it’s been a long time coming.

“Joe is a player we’ve had an eye on for quite a while, and we’re really pleased to have time tied down for next season,” Hodgson said.

“To add an international level player is a real positive having ran out for Fiji on numerous occasions; he has some great deception out of dummy-half and brings some speed and awareness to that department – and he’s at a good age with his best years ahead of him.

“He is ready for an opportunity. He has been unfortunate to find himself behind some great hookers like Cameron McInnes at the Dragons and Damian Cook at the Rabbitohs which has limited his path to first-grade, but he will have learnt a lot from guys like that.

“We’re really excited to offer him that chance to show what he can do and prove himself in Super League and whilst we see him as a dummy half option for us, he does also bring excellent utility value too which will add strength in a number of positions for us.”
