Tony Smith made the cross city switch from Hull KR after his departure from Craven Park to take on the Head Coach role at Hull FC and he’ll be talking to the fans at a members meeting next week.
The club have announced that he will attend a members meeting on December 8th where those in attendance can ask questions and get to understand their new head coach and his philosophy.
Members can apply for tickets for the meeting scheduled to start at 6PM via the club site.
Smith has a plethora of Super League experience starting his coaching career with Huddersfield Giants over 20 years ago.
Since then he’s coached Leeds Rhinos, Warrington Wolves and city rivals Hull KR achieving relative success at every club he has led.
Head Coach Tony Smith will sit down for his first Member's Meeting on Thursday 8th December 🙌
Hull FC's 2023 members exclusively invited to join the audience, with applications now open.

During his tenure in England he’s coached over 550 games and boasts a win rate of over 60% but most importantly he knows how to win silverware.
The Black and Whites are without a trophy since 2017 and without playoff Super League since 2020.
Smith will likely answer questions along the lines of what success and the future looks like for FC at this meeting.
He’s already made a strong impression with veteran forward Scott Taylor who has also made the city switch having moved from Hull KR and joining FC eight years ago.
Taylor told ‘The Punt’ on SMTMTV: “You’ve got Tony come in with lots of experience and lots of ideas. We’re gelling and we’re learning what Tony wants to do but I feel like I’m building a really good relationship with him already.”
