Shaul was a revelation for FC in 2016. The back’s explosive runs racked up 3057 metres and 103 tackle busts.
Jamie was the joint highest try scoring full back in 2016 with 14. With an average of over 44 points a game and a solid injury record, the Hull man was a reliable keeper at the position.
2016 Price: £125k
Joe Mellor was one of the top Dream Team players in 2016. Danny Brough normally leads the pack at scrum half, but Mellor emerged as the stand-out talent.
With strong all round stats and a great kicking game, Mellor can get points from anywhere. At £125k, whilst averaging over 60 points a game, Mellor was the biggest bargain last year.
2016 Price: £140k
Amor’s price was relatively high for a bargain, but his production means he must be considered a cheap option last year.
The forward was on a similar level to some of the highest priced players in Super League.
The Saints player of the year paid back his owners by playing every regular season game and making nearly 500 carries. When a player is involved as much as Amor there is limited downfall.
2016 Price: £110k
Fonua shone in the Hull setup and earned himself a spot in the 2016 Super League Dream Team.
Mahe flew as a centre and recorded seven assists through the season. Fonua made 68 tackle busts and the centre’s 45 offloads were the most of any FC player in 2016, showing just how pivotal the outside back was in Hull’s build-up play.
Fonua didn’t just set up tries, he was also the black and white army’s joint second highest try scorer.
2016 Price: £105k
The young prop played 29 games in Super League and the Super 8s last year showing his durability. Sutton made 788 tackles in 2016 with 133 of those tackles being from the marker position.
Big tacklers are a reliable option in Dream Team and rack up a high base of points, Sutton proved this to his owners with his high work rate and consistency.
