Jason Crookes: Hull FC is a step up from what I'm used to
WINGER Jason Crookes says the standard of facilities and training at Hull FC have been an eye-opener following his move from Bradford.
Crookes has joined the Black and Whites on a three-year deal after a year of turmoil at the then crisis-stricken Bulls.
And three weeks into his training, the 22-year-old says he's been massively impressed with his new club.
"Training is totally different to what I was used to at Bradford," Crookes told the Mail.

"It's a great set-up here and the sports science in particular is impressive. It has been really tough. Our conditioner has just come back from Australia and is giving it to us.
"It has been really hard work, but the lads have been very welcoming to me and I feel settled in now."
Four years after making his Super League debut against Hull, the winger is hoping for a real breakthrough season in terms of becoming a name in the competition.
For now though, his only focus is trying to break into Hull's first team, ahead of the likes of Tom Lineham and Ben Crooks.
"There is a bit of pressure coming here, but I can't think about that I've just got to train the best I can," he added.
"It's going to be hard for everyone to get in the team, but that will keep me on my toes. You come to training knowing you have to work hard and have to impress each day."
