Hull have appointed the newly-arrived prop Andy Lynch as their captain for the coming Super League season.

The 32-year-old former Bradford front-rower has impressed in his short time at the club. "He exudes confidence and has that leadership quality," said the coach Peter Gentle, who is also embarking on his first season with Hull.

North Wales Crusaders have signed four more players, who could make their debuts in the new club's first fixture, a friendly against the amateurs of Leigh Easts tonight. They are the successors to the defunct Crusaders club and will compete in Championship One this season.
