Hull FC duo Tickle and Moa out for season
Hull FC forwards Danny Tickle and Sam Moa have been ruled out for the rest of the season, the club has confirmed today.
It leaves coach Peter Gentle missing 10 first team squad members, considering a recall for assistant Lee Radford, and looking for emergency cover.
For Moa, it means a sad end to his FC career, as he has decided to return home to Australia at the end of the season.

"It's obviously a huge blow to lose two more of your first-team squad for such a long period of time, particularly players like Sam and Ticks who are a key part of our team," Gentle told the club's website.
"It definitely leaves us a little short, we're not having the best run of luck with injuries at the moment but that is part of the game and we must roll our sleeves up and get on with it.
"We are keeping a close eye on the market at the moment, particularly with the current situation at other clubs and players that could become available.
"There are always deals and opportunities to be had out there, but we won't be rushing into anything or signing players for the sake of it."
