With opportunities seemingly limited for him in 2011, due to the arrival of Titans hooker Nathan Friend, NZ Warriors hooker Aaron Heremaia has decided to head to ESL club Hull FC.

Heremaia and Hull agreed to a 2-year deal, with the club holding the option for a third year, and for Heremaia himself, he cannot wait for the opportunity to play for Hull.

“They are a huge club with a big history and tradition and have had some pretty big names there down the years too, so it doesn’t take much to sell a club like that,” commented Heremaia.

“I know I am joining an ambitious club with a good squad and coach and I think we have the potential to achieve something. They have just signed two new players with plenty to offer, so it’s something I want to be part of.”

“I have now been lucky enough to get another chance to play in Super League in England and it’s one I jumped at to come back and fulfil one of my dreams.”

Richard Agar, Hull FC coach said the following on securing the play-maker for their club:

“Aaron has been playing the best football of his career and has been an outstanding performer for the Warriors over the last couple of seasons.

“He’ll give us another terrific option around the ruck, he has a tremendous kicking game and he can also play in the halves too.

“He is a great professional who comes with glowing reports from everyone who has worked with him, including New Zealand’s International coach (Stephen Kearney).

“He is looking forward to playing Super League and will give us significant strength in the pivotal roles.”
