Squad

THE CLASS OF 2017

Hull FC’s 2017 squad, their age, games played, tries scored, and most importantly, the year they are contracted until. 

Hull FC real deal

1 – Jamie Shaul – Hull-born speedster that loves catching high bombs, running and making a fool out of Wigan fullbacks. Scored the winner at Wembley last season.

Age: 24 | Games: 110 | Tries: 72 | Contracted until: 2020

2 – Mahe Fonua – Everything he touchs turns into gold – no teeth pun intended. When he hits top gear he’s practically unplayable.

Age: 24 | Games: 52 | Tries: 25 | Contracted until: 2018 (signed for Wests for 2018 season)

3 – Carlos Tuimavave – Tricep circumference measures the width of the Humber. Future looks destined in the centres with Kelly’s arrival.

Age: 25 | Games: 48 | Tries: 20 | Contracted until: 2018

4 – Josh Griffin – Already a fans hero given the role he played in Rovers’ relegation.  Josh is an intriguing signing. He’s fast, skilful and capable of absolute carnage.

Age: 27 | Games: 25 | Tries: 3 | Contracted until: 2019

5 – Fetuli Talanoa – Best all-round winger in Super League. Yardage from kick returns and ability to scoot are both first class. Inaugural member of Hull FC’s Kava club.

Age: 29 | Games: 100 | Tries: 44 | Contracted until: 2018

6 – Albert Kelly – Has the potential to be an excellent signing. Explosive half back that plays direct at the line. Ole ole ole ole.

Age: 26 | Games: 23 | Tries: 19 | Contracted until: 2018

Albert Kelly Hull FC

7 – Marc Sneyd – The best half back Hull FC have had in the last ten years. Timid off the field though, most likely explained by the fact he’s a Manchester United fan. Poor lad.

Age: 26 | Games: 84 | Tries: 12 | Contracted until: 2019

8 – Scott Taylor – Angry looking ginger prop who can replicate big minutes and metres week in week out.  Consistently brilliant last season.

Age: 26 | Games: 56 | Tries: 10 | Contracted until: 2019

9 – Danny Houghton – Prolific scooter, tackler and dancer. Great work ethic that won Hull the Challenge Cup. Costs his side a fortune in ear tape though.

Age: 28 | Games: 290 | Tries: 39 | Contracted until: 2020

Danny Houghton

10 – Liam Watts – Wattsy is a top draw prop with a superb offload ability. We’re willing to bet he can down a pint the fastest too. What a bloke.

Age: 26 | Games: 144 | Tries: 11 | Contracted until: 2020

11 – Dean Hadley – Promoted to a starting jersey number, Hadley has a huge future with Hull FC. He plays with great energy and hits some terrific lines.

Age: 24 | Games: 49 | Tries: 6 | Contracted until: 2019

12 – Mark Minichiello – At the heart of every single middle aged women in East Yorkshire with those “thunder thighs” – or so Round Up columnist Caroline Green leads us to believe. Mini definitely eats his spinach.

Age: 35 | Games: 82 | Tries: 18 | Contracted until: 2018

Mark Minichiello Hull FC

13 – Gareth Ellis – Entering his fifth season at Hull FC and still at the peak of his powers. Freakishky talented player that leads by a captains example.

Age: 36 | Games: 94 | Tries: 19 | Contracted until: 2017 (retiring end of season)

14 – Jake Connor – Can play anywhere accross the backline. Intriguing new signing that could be a huge hit with the Black and Whites.

Age: 22 | Games: 25| Tries: 8 | Contracted until: 2018

New signings Hull FC

15 – Chris Green – Prominent displays last season rewarded with a new three year deal. Deserves it. Always onside, especially from kicks.

Age: 27 | Games: 108 | Tries: 7 | Contracted until: 2019

16 – Jordan Thompson – Jordan’s pace for a middle man is quite rare and his chant is just superb. I want ginger hair too.

Age: 26 | Games: 101 | Tries: 12 | Contracted until: 2019

17 – Danny Washbrook – The United States president played a key role in turning around Hull’s fortunes at Wembley last season. Also reputable to legendary comebacks to silly Rovers fans on Twitter.

Age: 31 | Games: 193 | Tries: 18 | Contracted until: 2018

19 – Steve Michaels – Stevie Michaels is ‘avin a party, bring yer’ vodka and yer’ Charlie. Repeat until knackered.

Age: 30 | Games: 75 | Tries: 31 | Contracted until: 2017

20 – Curtis Naughton – Noggers is a more than reliable replacement for the wing and fullback positions. Loves Australia, vests and throwing heavy weights around.

Age: 22 | Games: 29 | Tries: 17 | Contracted until: Left the club mid-season

Curtis Naughton Hull FC

21 – Sika Manu – Scariest man alive, so it’s without question that he’s a brilliant rugby player too. Got better and better as 2016 endured.

Age: 30 | Games: 56 | Tries: 4 | Contracted until: 2018

22 – Josh Bowden – They used to call him ‘Back Tits’, but he now has one of the best rigs going. Performances last season were brilliant too, including a blinder at Wembley.

Age: 24 | Games: 112| Tries: 10 | Contracted until: 2019

23 – Nick Rawsthorne – Halifax junior and ex-Leeds Whino. Seen him play a handful of times. Reliable goal kicker when called upon.

Age: 20 | Games: 3 | Tries: 2 | Contracted until: 2018

24 – Jack Logan – A sickening knee injury spoilt what should of been a breakthrough year for Jack. Still fighting his way back to full fitness now. Loves his fishing.

Age: 21 | Games: 21 | Tries 9 | Contracted until: 2019

25 – Jansin Turgut – Had a beard and hair combo similar to Tyrion Lannister of Game of Thrones not too long ago. Jealous doesn’t even cut the word.

Age: 21 | Games: 23 | Tries: 3 | Contracted until: 2018 (Club option of extension)

Jansin Turgut Hull FC

26 – Callum Lancaster – Johnny Bravo’s try record is frightening. Scored tries for fun last season and has done so for the past three years. All-round game is also constantly improving, as is his fake tan lines.

Age: 20 | Games: 7 | Tries: 9 | Contracted until: Left club mid-season

Callum Lancaster Hull FC

27 – Jack Downs – Model professional and fully understands how to conduct himself both and off the field. Really likeable lad with a massive future.

Age: 21 | Games: 13 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2018

28 – Brad Fash – The Bullhead quickly accustomed himself to Super League with seven appearances back in 2015, and didn’t look out of place in any of them.

Age: 21 | Games: 25 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2018

29 – Masimbaashe Matongo – From Zimbabwe, to Kent, to Hull, Masi’s story is remarkable. Academy Player of the Year for 2015. Heard he’s rubbish at FIFA though.

Age: 21 | Games: 9 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2018

30 – Jez Litten – Made his Super League debut at Warrington and quickly accustomed himself with three appearances. Hugely talented player with a massive future ahead of him.

Age: 19 | Games: 3 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2019

33 – Connor Bower – Still awaiting Super League debut despite being named in provisional squad on two occasions. Defensively tough player with an immecable attitude.

Age: 20 | Games: 0 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2017
