Hull FC have announced the loan signing of Tiaki Chan from Wigan Warriors.

The 23-year old Australian-born French international has joined the club on a short-term loan agreement.

Chan, who is capable of playing at both prop and back-row, can add further forward options to Simon Grix’s squad ahead of Sunday’s Super League fixture against London Broncos.

Chan has 62 senior appearances under his belt, previously representing Saint-Estève XIII, Catalans Dragons, and Toulouse Olympique before joining the Warriors ahead of the 2024 campaign.

He made his Super League debut for Catalans Dragons against Leeds Rhinos in 2022.

Chan made twelve appearances for Els Dracs, and also spent time on loan at fellow French side Toulouse Olympique in 2023.

Hull FC’s Director of Rugby, Richie Myler, said: “We’re thankful to Wigan for allowing Tiaki to join us in a position that we’re currently light in.

“Tiaki has a real desire to compete at the highest level and we’re pleased to have him within our group.

“I’m excited to see what he can bring to us over the coming weeks.”

This is further to a loan move for Sam Eseh from Wigan to Castleford Tigers, which was announced earlier today.

Wigan’s transition coach John Duffy said: “Hull FC will provide Tiaki with an opportunity to gain some valuable gametime in the next couple of weeks.

“We look forward to seeing him play some Super League minutes in the coming weeks.”

Tiaki Chan will be made immediately available for Hull FC’s upcoming fixtures.
