Jamie Shaul reveals new position at Hull FC after being forced out by Jake Connor

Hull FC 26-24 Castleford Tigers

Jamie Shaul has been a Hull FC player for all of his career, but has faced a tough 18 months both with injury and positioning woes.

After rupturing his ACL back in October 2020, Shaul was faced with the prospect of losing his fullback spot to Jake Connor under new head coach Brett Hodgson.

The 29-year-old was still sat on the sidelines when the new Hull number one enjoyed a stellar year, but Shaul did return to play in the Hull derby at the back end of 2021.

However, having spoken to Hodgson, Shaul knows exactly where he stands with regards to the fullback position.

“I’ve spoken to Brett Hodgson and he’s made it clear that Jake will be first choice which is nothing I can do about,” Shaul told the Rugby League Review podcast.

“I just wanted to know where I stood and Jake has got that spot cemented.

“I asked him (Hodgson) if I could have a crack at one of the wing spots and that’s where I want to play this season.

“If it comes to round one and he chooses someone else then it is what it is because I know I’ve done all I can.”
