Trio join Hull exit

Ewan Dowes, Cameron Phelps and Danny Washbrook confirmed on Monday they are leaving Hull a day after the Super League club's play-off defeat to Leeds.

The trio have failed to secure new deals, with Dowes ending a nine-year stay, academy graduate Washbrook a six-year one and Phelps just six months.

Dowes, who joined from Leeds in 2003, made over 200 appearances and won the Challenge Cup in 2005. He also played in the 2006 Grand Final and the 2008 Cup final.

"That was officially my last game for Hull FC last night," the 30-year-old wrote on his Twitter account. "It's been an awesome nine years, gutted to be leaving. Gonna miss the lads and fans."

Dowes and Washbrook are expected to follow outgoing coach Richard Agar to Wakefield.

Wests Tigers and Australia assistant coach Peter Gentle was last week named to take Agar's place at Hull.

Phelps, part of the Wigan squad who won the Super League title last season, is now Federation trained and if he stays in Super League will do so as a non-quota player.
