Hull FC wait on Tom Briscoe decision
HULL FC say there is still no news on the future of winger Tom Briscoe as he continues to explore all his options.
Out of contract at the end of the season, Briscoe is looking at options in Australia and weighing up a significant three-year deal offered by the Black and Whites.
The England international and his agent David Riolo are still to inform the club of their plans, after placing their own deadline of the start of the NRL season for concluding his future.
The deadline passed a week ago with Hull director of rugby Shaun McRae contacting Riolo to seek further clarity.

"I've had a conversation with Tom's agent and it is still an ongoing process, so that is where we are at. There isn't any more news at the minute," McRae told the Mail.
Briscoe was hoping to have his future resolved by now, with each passing week seemingly strengthening Hull's hand in their bid to re-sign the 22-year-old.
Coach Peter Gentle expects Briscoe to accept Hull's offer if his player fails to get the right deal in Australia.
Sources had suggested to the Mail that deal was expected to be at Cronulla Sharks, although the doping scandal engulfing the club means that option appears in jeopardy.
Cronulla have seen their coach, chief executive, chairman and many back room staff depart in the past few weeks as part of the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority investigation.
Hull have stressed they are in no rush for a decision from Briscoe, with the well publicised deadline one put in place by the player and his agent, not the club.
