Richard Horne extends Hull FC deal
RICHARD Horne has promised to keep on giving his all for Hull FC after agreeing a one-year extension to his deal.
Whilst the 30-year-old has struggled with injuries in recent seasons, he was back to his best with a man-of-the-match display in the win against Bradford on Sunday.
With Daniel Holdsworth’s place in the Hull side all-but assured, Horne is competing with Brett Seymour for the remaining half-back place.
But as his 350th appearance for the Black and Whites looms on the horizon, the one-club man is relishing the challenge.

"I'm pleased the club have offered me another year. I still know I've got plenty of footy in me and I can't see myself playing anywhere other than Hull," said Horne.
"It's my club and I'll keep giving it all I can until the day I know it's time to hang up the boots.
"At the minute, I'm loving every minute of it, we have a great team of lads and a lot of belief about what we can achieve and that is something we all want to be a part of."
The new deal will take the veteran playmaker into his 15th season with the club, having made his debut as a 16-year-old against Leeds.
As a Challenge Cup winner, Horne boasts a wealth of experience. He has played in a Grand Final as well as representing Great Britain.
And Hull coach Peter Gentle believes the versatile star – who can also play hooker, wing, centre and full-back – still has plenty left to offer in the club's quest for silverware.
"He is a one-club man and for that reason it was an extremely easy decision to offer him another contract extension," he said.
"But there is little room for sentiment in this game and we wouldn't be offering any player a new contract if we didn't think they had anything to contribute to the team, but I think everybody saw exactly what Horney can bring to the table on Sunday."
