Ex-Hull FC half-back upsets York after quitting club

Former Hull FC half-back Danny Nicklas has upset York after quitting the Championship club to sign for Hull KR. The 21-year-old joined the City Knights a week ago after being released by the Black and Whites and played in Sunday's 52-4 defeat by Leigh.

In a statement, York said: "We would like to thank Danny for his efforts and wish him well in his future career." However, coach Gary Thornton says he was shocked by the move. "I'm really disappointed with how it's transpired," Thornton told the York Evening Press.
