Real shame but sure we got him for peanuts & he is entitled to a substantial contract, we do have too many wingers though ( when fit ). BUT he is the only one who regularly busts the line from deep & has the pace to go all the way, really exciting player with plenty of improvement still in him.

Best of luck for the future, although brief you have been a rare chink of brightness in an otherwise drab, clueless attack !!

Gutted but as said not surprised. Good luck to the lad and he sure has given us some good memories.

Well I’m gutted, Ratu is absolutely breathtaking in his short spell with us, power and pace as good as any playing here. Some questions about his positional sense, but when he gets it right he smashes the bejesus out of his opponent’s. What a find by Radders, an exciting missile powered player, and contrary to the not surprising departure narrative, one wonders if Wigan Saints or Leeds would have succumbed.

Good luck Ratu on your hopefully return this season, and with a heavy heart wishing you all the best in the RFU.

yes i think there would, hes a union man whos still employed by the army, he would have been offered a big contract by union i would have thought, hes 30 next year and could be his last big paycheck, one i doubt any in league could match, so again no real suprise and good luck Ratu

Hull offered Ratu an extension of his contract, but it seems it wasn’t tempting enough, all those who were privileged to watch him live, will be saddened at his departure, speed and power, valuable assets.

Sadly inevitable and not unexpected and will indeed go on with the best wishes of all the Hull fans I'm sure. Sadly League just can not compete with the money on offer in Union and also he states its to be back closer to his family & friends.
He'll be a big miss no doubt but we all knew this would happen at some point.
Best of luck to the guy
I really enjoy long walks especially when they are taken by people I don't like!
