Yesterday, Hull FC confirmed that Chris Satae and Brad Dwyer will depart the club at the end of the 2023 campaign.
30-year-old Satae, who joined the Black & Whites in the latter stages of the 2019 campaign, has made 83 appearances in all competitions for Hull, winning the clubs Player of the Year Award.
Meanwhile, Brad Dwyer will also depart the MKM Stadium at the end of the 2023 season after a year in Black & White.
Both players are departing the club at the end of the season for family reasons and will take up new challenges elsewhere in Super League.
Head Coach Tony Smith said: “Chris has been with the club for a number of years now and he is seeking a new challenge and a change of lifestyle with his family, which we fully respect.
He added: “He has been a total joy to work with and he is whole-heartedly looking forward to seeing out the rest of the year with Hull FC whilst in great physical and mental shape.
On Dwyer, Smith said: “It’s the second time I have worked with Brad throughout my coaching career and he is enjoying his time with us, but he now has opportunity to be a little bit closer to home which is right for him and his family. Like Chris, Brad is really focused on the remainder of the year with us and they both have a big role to play.”
It was announced later yesterday that Satae will set to join Catalans Dragons.
Meanwhile, former Leeds Rhinos hooker Dwyer is now one step closer to a sensational move.
The hooker who started his career at the Warrington Wolves is set to go back there in 2024 as a replacement for Daryl Clark who is set to join St Helens to take over from the retiring James Roby.
