Luke Gale’s transfer to Hull FC at the end of the 2021 Super league season took almost all of the rugby league fraternity by surprise.
After Marc Sneyd’s move to Salford Red Devils, Hull were in dire need of a halfback – and they found Gale.
The halfback had endured a tough 2021 for Leeds Rhinos, being stripped of the captaincy and facing the prospect of being eked out by Blake Austin and Aidan Sezer.
And, now he has broken his silence after being asked about his exit from Headingley live on Sky Sports before Hull’s game against Leeds last night.
“They were enjoyable memories at Leeds, I loved my time here,” Gale said.
“I came from Castleford, and I thank Gary (Hetherington) for bringing me here, it was my hometown club but it didn’t end the way I wanted it to.
“They were a great set of lads and I had good times and memories that I will keep with me for a lifetime.”
Gale has revealed that him and Richard Agar didn’t see ‘eye to eye’.
“That’s all behind me, I was stripped of the captaincy and my time towards the end, it wasn’t a great time personally for me and for my family.
“Me and the coach didn’t see eye to eye and things transpired and moved quickly, but this year I’m at Hull FC and I don’t regret coming to Leeds.”
