Former Brisbane Bronco Steve Michaels has signed a one-year contract with English Super League side Hull.
English Super League side Hull have made Australian winger or centre Steve Michaels their fourth recruit for 2015 after the 26-year-old signed a one-year deal, with an option of a second season at the KC Stadium.
The Airlie Birds say the former Brisbane Broncos three-quarter, who has spent the four years with Gold Coast Titans, was recommended to them by former Australia and Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett.
“We are really pleased to get Steve’s signature,” Hull coach Lee Radford said.
“He will undoubtedly add some speed and competition to our backline for 2015.
“Everyone I’ve spoken to regarding his personality have said the same, that he is a competitor, which is music to my ears.”
Michaels has made only one appearance for the Titans this year after spending most of it on compassionate leave and is keen to kick-start his career.
“I’m rapped to come over to Hull,” said Michaels, who is following his Titans teammate Mark Minichiello to the KC Stadium.
“I’ve always dreamed of coming over to the UK. It’s the right time now for me but I’ve still got plenty of footy left in me.”
