Danny Tickle, (born 8 April 1983 in Golborne, Greater Manchester) is an English professional rugby league footballer for Hull of Super League. His usual position is in the Second-row.

Playing career[edit]

Tickle has previously played for Halifax Blue Sox and Wigan Warriors.[2]

Previously, he played three years for the Halifax club in Super League. Tickle signed for Wigan despite interest from other Super League sides, including St. Helens.

Tickle has played for the English national team against New Zealand at Brentford in November 2002, kicking 4 goals. He toured Fiji and Tonga with England A later that year. He made three appearances on the tour, scoring tries against Fiji and Tonga. He was later named in the 2003 England A squad to face Australia and in the European Nations Cup, scoring 54 points on the way to England's victory.

Tickle played for the Wigan Warriors at second-row forward, scoring a try in the 2003 Super League Grand Final which was lost to the Bradford Bulls.

He performed well enough to earn a new two-year contract in July 2004. The following season, Danny was outstanding in an injury-hit Warriors squad and picked up the Wigan Supporters' Association Player of the Season award.

Tickle was linked with a move to the Widnes Vikings for the 2013 season but nothing has come to light of this. However, it is well known that Tickle does plan to join them from the 2014 season onwards.

Tickle has always been known for his ability to wrap the ball up in a tackle due to his extraordinarily long arms.
