Clubs like Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves and Hull KR have confirmed signings for the 2024 season as have Hull FC but they are also one of the clubs to confirm the most departures.
The Black and Whites have announced the departures of Brad Dwyer, expected to join Warrington as St Helens bound Daryl Clark’s replacement, and Chris Satae in the past as well as halfback Jake Clifford’s move to North Queensland Cowboys.
Today they confirmed that Adam Swift and Andre Savelio would also be leaving the club.
The duo have been heavily linked with a move to Huddersfield Giants and thus the topic was raised to Ian Watson.
Though Watson didn’t give the game away, from what he said it seems the Giants are set to sign the duo.
When asked if the club were ready to confirm the news, he said: “Probably not at the moment. I didn’t know Hull had released that. We’ve just been training so I’ve not seen that mate to be fair.
“But hopefully, when the time’s right, the club will probably make a decision about announcing players for next year as we go forward to be fair.”
Hull FC confirmed the departures today with the following statement:
“Hull FC can confirm that Adam Swift and Andre Savelio will both depart the club at the end of the 2023 Betfred Super League season.
“Swift, 30, joined the club from Saints ahead of the 2020 campaign, going on to make 59 appearances so far across the last four seasons.
“The winger will leave at the end of the season due to family reasons, returning to live in St Helens following the birth of his second child.
“Meanwhile, 28-year-old Savelio will also depart at the end of the current campaign, having also featured 59 times since arriving at the club from Brisbane Broncos in 2019.
“Everyone at the club would like to thank both Adam and Andre for their efforts in Black & White and we look forward to seeing them represent Hull FC for the remainder of the season.”
The club recruited Herman Ese’ese on Monday and have now been linked with Shawn Blore according to Fox Sports down under, both players that will help their pack and potentially cover the loss of Savelio, but certainly not Swift.
