Hull FC have announced the signing of Salford Red Devils centre Josh Griffin on a three-year deal from next season.
The 26-year-old has played for a number of Super League clubs, including Wakefield, Huddersfield and Castleford before switching to Rugby Union with Leeds Carnegie in 2012.
He returned to League two years later with Championship club Batley Bulldogs before joining brothers Darrell, now with Featherstone Rovers, and George, a former Hull KR junior, at Salford.
“I want to play in big games in front of big crowds and hopefully push for an international spot and I believe Hull is the best club to help me do that.
“Josh will be a great addition to our squad and I’m really looking forward to him joining the group.
“He’s a player we have had to put a lot of focus on when coming up against Salford over the last couple of seasons because of his physical presence both in defence and attack and his ability with the ball in hand."
Around a thousand people have turned out to pay their final respects to rugby league legend Roger Millward in West Yorkshire today.
More than 400 mourners filled St Mary's Church in Kippax, and 600 others gathered outside during the service.
Millward, who had fought a long and brave battle with cancer and the agony from a broken jaw linked to the illness, died aged 68 at the beginning of May.
He was born in Castleford, and began his illustrious career at his hometown club. But it was at Hull Kingston Rovers where he established himself as one of the greatest players of his generation.
Another service will take place at Pontefract Crematorium later this afternoon.

Tinirau Arona has signed a one-year contract extension with Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, with the option of a further year.
The 26-year-old forward joined from NRL side Cronulla sharks and has featured in 12 games for the Wildcats this season, bagging two tries in the Challenge Cup clash against Sheffield Eagles.
I am very happy, it is good to know that I am secure here for another year and hopefully for a second year too. It was the right decision for me and my family and we are really happy here at the moment, I am now just looking forward to the rest of the season and the next.
I’m enjoying my time playing under Chris Chester, he has brought a lot of structure and confidence to the team and I think this is what we needed. Earlier on in the season when we were not doing so well I knew there was only a matter of time before we started to bring some wins together and a lot of credit goes to Chezzy for doing this.
Bradford Bulls have appointed Rohan Smith as their new head coach.
Smith joins the Bulls on a three-year deal after being allowed to leave his assistant coach position at Australian side Gold Coast Titans.
He's the son of ex-Bulls head coach Brian Smith, who left his job in charge of Wakefield earlier this season. Rohan Smith replaces James Lowes, who left the club for personal reasons.
I cannot wait to get over to England and I am really looking forward to the next chapter of my career working for the Bulls. I’ve had a long affinity with the Bulls since 1996 at the beginning of the Super League with my dad and it was great to be a part of it watching on from the stands.
I was fortunate enough to start coaching at a young age and my path has been a bit different to the path which most coaches take. I’ve been the apprentice at a series of NRL clubs, plus the time I spent in the UK with London Broncos and during that time, the Provident Stadium, Odsal was always an intimidating place to visit but also exciting at the same time.
This position I feel is something I have worked hard for and I’m ready to take it on.
