Hock Locked In Talks

Hock Locked In Talks

Gareth Hock says he is in talks with a number of clubs and hopes to reveal his next destination sooner rather than later. The former Wigan and England forward is on the lookout for a new club after he was released by Championship side Featherstone, who could not afford his wages for next season.

However the 35-year-old has no intention of calling it a day just yet and is very hopeful of getting fixed up with a new club for 2019.

“I’m carrying on,” he said. “I’m just talking to a few clubs now, I want to get it sorted sooner rather than later so I know what I’m doing. I’m in good shape and feeling good.

“I had a good season with Featherstone and had signed for another year.”

Rovers, who failed to reach the top-four of the Championship, released Hock by mutual consent.

“They couldn’t afford to pay my wages next year, so we came to an agreement – I left on good terms,” Hock added.
