“No price for happiness”- Nu Brown explains Hull FC exit

After sacking Hull FC last Thursday, the club confirmed the release of overseas players Tex Hoy and Nu Brown with the latter now sharing a message explaining his departure.

Whilst the news of Hoy’s release wasn’t the biggest shock given the social media saga that saw the Australian unfollow FC and his father post negative comments on the club’s Instagram, the release of Brown was a shock.

The New Zealand international had been one of the club’s better players after signing his one-year deal ahead of the new Super League campaign,

During his eight games, he scored three tries but his time at the club was marred by a controversial incident that saw him sent off against Warrington Wolves, prompting the RFL to revise its framework on accidental head contacts.

Despite this, Brown was granted a release from the club on compassionate grounds so he could return home closer to his family with chairman Adam Pearson confirming on BBC Humberside that his wife’s father had fallen serially ill.

Pearson added: “I would say that the form of the team has also played a part in that; getting thumped every week, he wouldn’t have enjoyed that too much, but it is predominately compassionate grounds.”

Brown has recently released a statement online to his fans about his time playing for the club and what the fans and the city of Hull mean to him.

He said, “It’s been a crazy two days of packing my life and heading back home to Australia. I didn’t want to play for another SL club part from Hull FC hence why I’m going home.

“If it was about the money, I would’ve stayed and collected a paycheck. There’s no price for happiness. Nothing but love for this beautiful town.

“There were talks about how bad the city was before coming here but there’s good parts and bad parts of any place. All I saw was the good.”

Towards the end of the statement, Brown offered a heartwarming message to his fans, fellow players and the club staff, explaining: “The amount of support you fans have given to me is something I haven’t experienced before; I’ve made lifelong friends here.”

“The conversations I’ve had with supporters and players are something I won’t forget. It’s a tough time for the club right now, but with any situation, it’ll only build resilience and strength for the players/staff and fans,” Brown concluded.

Brown now returns down under and could well take up an opportunity with an NRL side.

Hull FC will now look to kick on without Brown and they’ve already made the first step in their rebuild with the appointment of Richie Myler as their Director of Rugby, the ex-Leeds Rhinos man facing the task of hiring Tony Smith’s successor.
