Hull FC to add two more players, says Adam Pearson
HULL FC owner Adam Pearson says the club have not finished their recruitment and still have a further two players to add to their squad.
The Black and Whites unveiled a raft of new signings and player retentions last month following the end of their season.
However, eager to let fans know Hull have not finalised their squad yet, Pearson says the plan is to spend at the salary cap maximum and two more players are expected to arrive.
Of the two players, one is expected to be former Hull KR full-back Shannon McDonnell, the other being a new half-back.

Having seen their pursuit of Rangi Chase end in disappointment, Pearson admits Hull may need to turn their attentions to Australia.
"We have brought six new players in and we've still got probably two more to come," Pearson told the Mail.
"We are looking around and are taking a look in Australia. We will be at salary cap maximum and we've brought quality in already, but we haven't finished yet."
Those additions could be followed by out-of-contract Martin Aspinwall and Ryan McGoldrick, although those deals will depend on the finalising of the two new recruits.
Pearson says the players already signed have brought a real lift to everyone at the club.
"I feel there is a buzz about the place," added Pearson. "Daniel Holdsworth is a fantastic signing and Ben Galea and Gareth Ellis will give us that leadership up front.
"Paul Johnson will surprise a few and then we have good young backs in Joe Arundel and Jason Crookes. The squad looks really good."
