Hull FC have signed seven new players for the 2025 campaign so far, with four more acquired mid-season in what is set to be a new-look side at the MKM Stadium next year. The Black and Whites also have a new head coach in John Cartwright, with new backroom staff also set to be appointed. Here, Hull Live looks at how the club is shaping up for next year.

Full-Back: Treigh Stewart, 23
The club will hope for an instant impact from the Papua New Guinean, who has signed with immediate effect from Queensland Cup side Brisbane Tigers. He featured against the Australian Prime Ministers XIII last year and joins on an 18-month deal.

Wing: Harvey Barron, 21
This one, as it stands, is a straight battle between Lewis Martin, with the club hoping both wingers are the long-term solutions to both flanks. Currently, Barron is getting the nod, playing the last two, with Martin featuring eleven times this year.

Half-Back: Jake Trueman, 25

Prop: Herman Ese'ese, 29
The former Kiwi international has been Hull's best player this season. He still has two more years to run on his deal.

Hooker: Amir Bourouh, 23
The Salford Red Devils hooker signed a deal with Hull last month for 2025. The club are still looking for a further hooker signing, but it's hoped that Bourouh can be a tidy acquisition in his own right.

Prop: Ligi Sao, 31
The fiery forward still has one year remaining on his deal and will look to produce his best rugby again in the middle of the field.

Back Row: Oliver Holmes, 31
The West Yorkshire native is one of four players Hull have signed from Leigh Leopards for 2025. He will look for some home comforts once again on the right side of the Pennines.

Back Row: Jed Cartwright, 27
The son of new head coach John Cartwright, Jed stands at 6"4 and will hope to give Hull some strike on the edge. He's one of two mid-season quota signings.

Interchange: Judah Rimbu, 22
The Papua New Guinea hooker is the club's second new dummy-half for the 2025 season. He made his international debut last year and is currently playing with the PNG Hunters in the Queensland Cup.

Interchange: Brad Fash, 28
The Hull-born forward stepped up to a vice-captain role this year and will hope to really hit the ground running with a full pre-season.

Interchange: Yusuf Aydin, 23
One of four permanent mid-season acquisitions, Aydin's work rate and energy have already proven to be a cut above. He's been a good addition.

Interchange: Jack Ashworth, 28
The forward has worked his socks off in his time on the field this year. He has a good attitude and will look to find his feet again after overcoming a thumb injury.
