Hull FC: Ben Galea 'has plenty in the tank' after signing one-year deal
Former Hull KR captain Ben Galea has signed a one-year deal with Hull FC.
The Black and Whites announced the move this morning, confirming the news which the Mail brought to fans last weekend.
The former Rovers captain insists says the chance to play at Hull reinvigorated his desire to play rugby.
And the 34-year-old promises fans he still has plenty to offer.

"I am really looking forward to getting started with Hull FC, it is a move that excites me," said Galea.
"I know all about the club from their rivalry with Hull KR, I've been involved in the big derby games and there is nothing quite like that atmosphere at the KC Stadium.
"The longer I have thought about it, the more I've realised how much I want to continue with my footy and that I feel I’ve still got enough left in the tank to go around again, so when the chance came up to move to a club like Hull and work with a coach like Peter Gentle, it reinvigorated me and I jumped at it."
Galea had initially announced his retirement from the game after failing to agree a contract for next season with Rovers.
He becomes Hull’s fourth new signing for next season following Gareth Ellis, Joe Arundel and Daniel Holdsworth.
