Yorkshire's Super League Team of the Week - Hull FC hit a six

On the back of a ruthless 35-4 destruction of Salford Red Devils, Hull FC once more top the Team of the Week, bettering last week’s effort of five picks by this time rising to six.


Jake Connor (Hull FC)

Continued his fine start to the season with another telling display, creating two first half tries for Hull against Salford Red Devils with brilliant handling and running and generally ran the show. Notable mentions for Leeds Rhinos’ Jack Broadbent and Castleford Tigers’ Niall Evalds.


Adam Swift (Hull FC)

Given his chance by Brett Hodgson and repaying him royally, the former St Helens winger is making the most of his shot. Racked up a massive 190m and defensively solid, too, great to see him thriving after a difficult first season at KCOM Stadium.

Carlos Tuimavave (Hull FC)

You almost expect the Kiwi to deliver every week such is his consistency but the numbers should not be taken for granted: 196m and 28 tackles, a supreme effort yet again.

It says something about Hull’s quality at the moment, that Tuimavave’s not even the best performing centre at the club: Griffin produced twice as many tackles (28) and made more metres (217) as well as scoring again. Terrific start.


Jordan Turner (Castleford Tigers)

Unlucky not to get in last week with two try debut but Ryan Hall and Tom Johnstone were outstanding. No denying the makeshift winger this time, though; scored his third try against Leeds Rhinos and made an impressive 128m. Great recruit.

Lee Gaskell (Huddersfield Giants)

With Aidan Sezer still missing, stepped up from full-back and delivered most of Huddersfield’s best moments in defeat against Catalans, including two smart assists. Always looked dangerous in possession.


Jake Trueman (Castleford Tigers)

Looking increasingly authoritative, the 21-year-old marshalled Castleford expertly in to maintain a 100 per cent winning start to the season with victory over Leeds Rhinos. Fingers crossed he can stay fit.

Luke Yates (Huddersfield Giants)

A monumental effort from the prop as they tried to fightback against Catalans, making 51 tackles (team-mate Chris McQueen did the same) and 147m. Showed why Ian Watson wanted to bring him with him from Salford Red Devils


Danny Houghton (Hull FC)

Still doing 80 minutes under Brett Hodgson but with an extra zip in his step. The veteran hooker is kicking more and running more, not just doing his usual massive defensive stints, and is really making Hull tick.


Nathan Massey (Castleford Tigers)

One of Super League’s under-rated players, who just gets on with the job week in week out. Was no different against Leeds: another 34 tackles and plenty of work in attack, too, carrying for 153m.


Dean Hadley (Hull KR)

With players like Hadley around, you sense Rovers will come good eventually: tireless performer in their pack as they fell against St Helens.


Oli Holmes (Castleford Tigers)

Scored for the second game running to catch the eye but also did all his usual tonne of work, including 44 tackles and made four tackle busts.

Loose forward

Joe Cator (Hull FC)

Such an impressive young player, brings such energy and directness off the bench; made 31 tackles and ran for 170m, one of Super League’s leading forwards.

Leeds Rhinos' Zane Tetevano also made a big impression, putting in some huge hits against Castleford.
