Hull FC veteran Carlos Tuimavave is one of a number of players facing an uncertain future as we enter the 2024 season.
This is because his contract is set to expire at the end of next season and for a player like Tuimavave there are a number of factors to consider such as his age, his recent injuries and of course any desire to go back to Australia.
Speaking on BBC Radio Humberside, the centre addressed his future and being out of contract:
“I haven’t had too much thought about it. I’m just lucky that I’m still playing and I’m grateful to be here. I said to my wife, I just want to live in the moment and enjoy the season ahead because I know I haven’t got long left. So I think if I look too far of myself on the now, I’m just taking it day by day and trying to enjoy every day as well.”
As his future is questioned, the club have already brought in some major signings ahead of the 2024 season such as forwards from the NRL in the shape of Herman Ese’ese and Franklin Pele.
They have also signed former Featherstone Rovers star and Samoan and New Zealand international Fa’amanu Brown.
Tuimavave has spoken about the new signings and how they are settling in at the club as Tony Smith’s era in charge truly begins to take shape moving forward.
The current Hull skipper said: “They’ve been great. Each and every one of them added something to the group. We spoke about leadership earlier on and I think all of them have added good leadership to the group as well. They’re all speaking up in meetings and offering advice to all the young kids and just bringing the experience from being in the inner-race and coming here to the Super League.
“It’s big for these young kids to see these NRL players come over and see the way they train and the way they prepare for training. So no, it’s been good for everyone.”
He has also confirmed that he is considering giving up the captaincy.
