Hull FC have further bolstered their ranks for the 2016 Super League season with the signing of World Cup winner Sika Manu from Penrith Panthers.

Forward Manu, who won the World Cup with New Zealand in 2008 before going on to represent Tonga, has signed three-year deal at the KC Stadium.

"I'm really excited about a new start over in Super League and the move was what was best for me and my family," said Manu, who was a part of Melbourne Storm's winning grand final side in 2012.

"I've always watched Super League growing up and enjoyed the physicality.

"I'm looking forward to a new challenge and now I am working hard to get ready for next year and finishing this season strong with the Panthers.

"I've played with a few of the boys who will be at Hull next year before and I"m looking forward to teaming up with them again."

Hull also confirmed the return of Danny Washbrook from Wakefield Trinity Wildcats from next season, with the duo taking the club's intake to six new players.

Frank Pritchard, Carlos Tuimavave, Scott Taylor and Mahe Fonua will also arrive ahead of the new campaign.
