Hull FC have completed the signing of hooker Aaron Heremaia for next season.

The 28-year-old has joined from New Zealand Warriors on a two-year deal, with the club holding the option on a further year.

Heremaia will arrive in East Yorkshire with previous experience of playing in this country after stints at Leigh, Widnes and Halifax.

He is the club's third signing this week, following the capture of Jamie Ellis and Wade McKinnon for 2012.

Heremaia, who can also play half back, will count against the Black and Whites overseas quota.

It means it is likely that out-of-contract players Epalahame Lauaki and Cameron Phelps will have to make way, whilst Craig Fitzgibbon's future at the KC Stadium remains uncertain.
