The 20-year-old has signed an initial one-year deal with an option in the club's favour should they wish to extend his deal.

A convert from rugby union, where he represented England U18s and Leeds Carnegie, Rawsthorne also had a spell in the academy at Leeds Rhinos before joining Halifax.

I'm really pleased to add Nick to the squad next year, I think he has all the attributes to become a first-team regular for our club.

He has been very impressive in the reserves competition this year for Halifax, particularly when he played against us, whilst is accuracy with his goal kicking is also a real plus.

He is at a great age to progress his career to the next level and along with Jack Logan coming through the long term future of our outside backs looks very promising.

– Lee Radford, Hull FC head coach
