Luke Gale has been a part of Hull FC’s pre-season for the past week following his move from the Leeds Rhinos.
The outspoken halfback made the move to the MKM Stadium after two seasons at the Rhinos, where he won the Challenge Cup in 2020.
However, being stripped of the captaincy midway through last season seemed to kickstart Gale’s exit out of Headingley, whilst the signings of Aidan Sezer and Blake Austin seemed to point to a new direction at Leeds.
Now, though, Gale is just looking forward to bringing some resolve to the Hull side that ended up losing nine of their last ten games of the 2021 Super League season.
“It’s been a really good positive few weeks, the boys have been great they are a good set of lads and the coaching staff have all welcomed me with open arms,” Gale told the Hull Twitter account.
“I think it’s the mindset that you come in with, my mind was really positive coming here and I was really positive about the move.”
The halfback has revealed just what kind of qualities he will bring to the role in his one-year move to West Hull.
“Coming off the back of a disappointing end to the season, the coach wanted to get some of that mental toughness and there’s been some long days so far.
“But it’s a natural part of the person I am, I’ll jump in and I’m quite vocal in the way I play and that’s the way it is.”
