Luke Gale admits 2022 “wasn’t a good year” as he leaves Hull FC for Championship club

Luke Gale has been one of the best players in Super League of the last decade.

A member of the Super League Dream Team in 2015, 2016 and 2017, he also claimed the Man of Steel in 2017 as Castleford Tigers made the Grand Final. He then went on to play in the World Cup Final.

In 2020, he won his first major final nailing the decisive drop goal against Salford Red Devils as he went on to lift the Challenge Cup as Leeds Rhinos skipper.

However, he left the Rhinos at the end of 2021 to move to Hull FC but Gale has now admitted that 2022 “wasn’t a good year” for him as he spoke following his surprise move to Keighley Cougars:

“I’ve met and spoken with Rhys a few times now and he is one of the best young coaches within the game right now and we just clicked straight away.

“And that came of the back of last season which for me wasn’t a good year both personally and from a team point of view.

“But I am in a different stage of my career now and not getting any younger.

“I began my career at this level of the game with Doncaster and feel that I have now come full circle, and I can’t wait to see what the Championship brings this season as there isn’t one standout team and it will be a tough league.”
