1st Team, Home

A review of who did what for Hull last season

The new season starts on Saturday with a trip to Rossendale.
Ahead of the first of what we hope is a promotion-winning season, we look back at last season highlighting the keys performing in a season that saw the team beaten by Peterborough in the play-offs.
The stand-out performance came from Stephen Hihetah who broke the club’s record for tries in a single season. The winger scored 34 tries in just 20 games in a season that was disrupted with a hamstring injury that prevented him from reaching the 40 mark. Perhaps that can be achieved this season.
Hihetah reached 34 tries thanks to his five-try haul against Sandal.
The winger’s tries helped the club finish the season just 10 points shy of 1,000. A total of 150 tries were scored throughout the squad with only Paul Hamber and Dom Hardman failing to cross whitewash among players who played more than 10 times.
Fly-half Steve Johnson finished the season with 186 points including 57 conversions and 17 penalties.
Harvey Harding is the only player to have played all 30 games, with Ali Heard, Joe Stafford and Rupert Kay just one game behind the scrum-half.
Hookers Tom Rice and Mike Jobling join the club’s centurion list.
Award winners in case you need reminding were:
Player of the year – Joe Stafford
Players player of the year – Ali Heard
Forward of the year – Ben Bootham
Back of the year – Steve Hihetah
Young player of the year – Liam Regardsoe
Clubman of the year – Cal Donoghue
