Crocker to challenge visa refusal

Australian Test forward Michael Crocker says he will challenge the decision to refuse him a visa to allow him to join Hull FC this season.

Last week, the 28-year-old's application was rejected.

"Despite rumours circulating I am under no circumstances retiring," he told the Super League website.

"I am not negotiating with any NRL clubs at this stage. I am entirely focused on my visa application for England to play for Hull FC."

Crocker has been training with former team-mates at Melbourne Storm since his visa application was rejected.

When it was turned down, he became the second Australian to be denied a visa in January, with Todd Carney's proposed move to Huddersfield also called off.
