The 17 for 2016 – Hull FC

The ’17 for 2016′ feature rolls on, and this time we’re featuring a club that many Super League fans are tipping to be a bit of a surprise package in 2016: Hull FC.

The Black and Whites have done extensive recruitment for the season ahead, and hopes are high (well, in the west part of the city at least!) that Lee Radford’s men will be a force to be reckoned with this year.

But what’s the best squad they can field this season? Here’s our prediction of the strongest matchday 17 FC have at their disposal.

Incidentally, this week we also featured FC’s cross-city rivals Hull KR in our 17 for 2016, their squad prediction of ours is below!

Wing: Mahe Fonua

Centre: Jack Logan

Centre: Carlos Tuimavave
