Hull FC Player Reviews: Warrington at home

Defences were on top as Hull FC and Warrington battled out a 14-14 draw at the KCOM Stadium.

Here are Up the Cream’s individual player reviews.

Starting XIII:

Full Back: Jake Connor – Scored the first try, caught numerous high balls above his head, and probably told Chris Hill that he’s a twat too. The Snake was in amongst it as always,  but he didn’t have everything his own way.

Right Wing: Bureta Faraimo – Big fan of Faraimo. Gets Hull’s sets rolling with some tough carries and he’s benefitting from a couple of changes in defensive patterns too. Top player.

Right Centre: Carlos Tuimavave – Silky sort gliding over so nonchalantly for his try. Always grafting in yardage with another 215 metres made, and defensively sound too. A beautiful physical specimen.

Left Centre: Josh Griffin – Was in the tussle all game and heavily involved as always making 155 metres, yet he won’t be happy that Mamo got the better of him and Sneyd for his try late on.

Left Wing: Adam Swift – Worked hard and deserves his place in the team. He’s barely put a foot wrong this year.

Half Back: Ben McNamara – Solid if not spectacular. Really tidy at times and a very matured player for his age getting through a lot of work in defence.

Half Back: Marc Sneyd – Perhaps still feeling the effects of a dead leg, he is human after all… Threw a couple of forward passes and had an off day with his one-point efforts too. Weird that any of his missed attempts would have been his 600th goal for the club.

Prop: Scott Taylor – What an effort. Got through a mountain of work in two massive stints, topping 135 metres on the day. Proper larker is Tag. Gives everything for this club.

Hooker: Danny Houghton – Made an incredible 85, yes EIGHTY FIVE, tackles and didn’t miss one. That’s ridiculous, breaking the Super League record. A couple of decent scoots too when jumping out the ruck. The effort he puts in every week is unbelievable.

Prop: Chris Satae – The big fella has been immense so far this year. Wins the floor more than most (check out the play prior to Tuimavave’s try), and he puts the opposition on the back foot. Ran into the ground during Golden Point.

Right Back Row: Andre Savelio – Amazing what a bit of continuity in appearance can do. He’s looking stronger and stronger by the week. Played the full game and still had the energy to charge down drop-goals in Golden Point. Right shift.

Left Back Row: Jordan Lane – Incredible display. The two breaks leading to the tries were sensational. Runs some belting lines this lad. Outstanding player.

Loose Forward: Joe Cator – First starting nod of the year and came off with about a minute to go. Lazy bugger. He’s just sensational. Never stops. Over 50 tackles and 118 running metres.


Prop: Josh Bowden – Looks much more like the Josh Bowden we raved about before his ACL injury. Been solid so far.

Prop: Brad Fash – Looked to get those little legs pumping in another gutsy effort off the bench. Stepped it up this year. Fair play to him.

Prop: Jack Brown – Only got around a dozen minutes but it was his offload (if you can call it that) which got the ball rolling for Lane to break and for Connor to glide over for a sublime try. Brown went well. He always does.

Cameron Scott – The young outside back never made it onto the field.
