THE CLASS OF 2018
Hull FC’s 2018 squad, their age, games played, tries scored, and most importantly, the year they are contracted until.
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: 25 | Games: 121 | Tries: 75 | Contracted until: 2020
2 – Bureta Faraimo – Brought in to replace Mahe Fonua, Bureta is an international winger that is expected to pack a punch. He’s big, mobile and can move well – a pretty scary thought for Super League defenders in 2018.
Age: 27 | Games: 5 | Tries: 2 | Contracted until: 2019
3 – Carlos Tuimavave – Tricep circumference measures the width of the Humber. Future looks destined in the centres with Kelly’s arrival.
Age: 26 | Games: 56 | Tries: 22 | Contracted until: 2020
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: 34 | Tries: 3 | Contracted until: 2019
5 – Fetuli Talanoa – Yardage from kick returns and ability to scoot are both first class. Inaugural member of Hull FC’s Kava club.
Age: 30 | Games: 109 | Tries: 50 | Contracted until: 2018
6 – Albert Kelly – Not bad for a free transfer. Up there with the very best in Super League. He’s an absolutely class act.
Age: 26 | Games: 31 | Tries: 21 | Contracted until: 2018
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: 27 | Games: 95 | Tries: 15 | 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: 27 | Games: 66 | Tries: 11 | 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: 29 | Games: 297 | Tries: 40 | 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: 25 | Games: 55 | Tries: 8 | 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: 36 | Games: 92 | Tries: 18 | Contracted until: 2018
13 – 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: 26 | Games: 122 | Tries: 10 | Contracted until: 2019
14 – Jake Connor – Can play anywhere accross the backline. Intriguing new signing that could be a huge hit with the Black and Whites.
Age: 23 | Games: 37 | Tries: 12 | Contracted until: 2020
15 – Chris Green – Prominent displays last season rewarded with a new three year deal. Deserves it. Always onside, especially from kicks.
Age: 28 | Games: 112 | Tries: 7 | Contracted until: 2019
16 – Jordan Abull – Back from his gap year Abbo has settled into the squad again with ease. Will hope to put that leaner frame to good use in Super League. Definitely gets salad with his kebabs now.
Age: 22 | Games: TBC | Tries: TBC | Contracted until: 2019
17 – Danny Washbrook – The United States president combines his political duties with playing rugby league and eating burgers. Also reputable to legendary comebacks to silly Rovers fans on Twitter.
Age: 32 | Games: 203 | Tries: 19 | Contracted until: 2018
20 – 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, nor has he looked back. Great future ahead of him.
Age: 22 | Games: 33 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2021
21 – Sika Manu – Scariest man alive, so it’s without question that he’s a brilliant rugby player too. Like a fine wine seems to get better with age.
Age: 30 | Games: 64 | Tries: 5 | Contracted until: 2018
22 – 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: 20 | Games: 3 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2019
23 – Mickey Paea – Back for a second stint at the club after leaving a fans favourite in 2015.
Age: 31 | Games: TBC | Tries: TBC | Contracted until: 2019
24 – Jack Logan – A sickening knee injury spoilt what should of been a breakthrough year for Jack, but to his credit he’s fought back to the first team. Loves his fishing.
Age: 22 | Games: 22 | 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: 22 | Games: 27 | Tries: 3 | Contracted until: 2018 (Club option of extension)
26 – Jordan Lane – Tough back rower with a bit of flair about him too. Laney’s gone under the radar thanks to knee and back injuries, but he’s got a big future ahead of him. He’s a very skilful player.
Age: 20 | Games: 2 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2018
27 – Jack Downs – Model professional and fully understands how to conduct himself both and off the field. Really likeable lad.
Age: 22 | Games: 13 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2018
28 – Hakim Miloudi – The French three-quarter is an exciting prospect, at least if his Reserves performances are anything to go by. He’s fast, agile and tough too. Not afraid to get stuck in.
Age: 24 | Games: 0 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2019
29 – Masimbaashe Matongo – From Zimbabwe, to Kent, to Hull, Masi’s story is remarkable. Academy Player of the Year for 2015 and now a reliable member of the first team. Heard he’s rubbish at FIFA though.
Age: 21 | Games: 14 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2021
30 – Cameron Scott – Signed from Bradford, Cameron is tipped to make a big impact in the game. He’s a defensively astute centre which is a rarity for someone of his age, but something that will make him good pals with Radders.
Age: 18 | Games: 0 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2019
31 – Ross Osborne – Big prop that will spend the 2018 season at Doncaster. He’s more than capable of stamping his mark on League One.
Age: 20 | Games: 0 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2019
32 – Jack Sanderson – Confidence has bordered the line of arrogance recently but that’s a great trait for a player to have. Love a cocky bastard. Got some pace about him and scoring tries for fun on loan at Doncaster.
Age: 20 | Games: 0 | Tries: 0 | Contracted until: 2019
