Hull FC have signed former Great Britain international Stuart Reardon following his release by Warrington.

The 27-year-old full-back has joined the club until the end of the season and could face St Helens on Monday.

Reardon is currently awaiting sentence after pleading guilty to assaulting his estranged wife Kay.

"I am hoping that moving to Hull will give me a new start and I intend to be a positive influence in the club," said the former Bradford player.

"Hull FC is a massive club and one which has challenged for major honours over the last few seasons.

"I can't wait to join up with the squad and hopefully contribute to their push for further honours.

"My recent court case has been well documented, whilst my actions were very much out of character I acknowledge that does not justify or excuse my behaviour which I deeply regret."

Reardon began his career with Bradford and won the Harry Sunderland Trophy for his man-of-the-match display in the 2003 Grand Final victory over Wigan.

He parted company with Warrington on Thursday.

"Stuart will give us some much needed depth and cover to our back line," said Hull coach Richard Agar.

"I know he is looking forward to joining up with the squad."
