Profile

Hull-born hooker Danny Houghton made his debut for the Black and Whites back in 2007 and has since become an integral part of the starting XIII.

The 28-year-old was crowned as the 2016 Steve Prescott Man of Steel last October, becoming the first-ever Hull player to win the award.

At the Player of the Year awards in 2016, Houghton also scooped a double, winning the Supporters’ Player and Players’ Player of the Year.

The Hull FC vice-captain has been an ever-present for the Airlie Birds in recent years, earning plaudits from supporters and fellow professionals for his 80-minute displays and incredible defensive statistics.

A member of the Super League Dream Team in 2016, Houghton finished as Super League’s top tackler in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016 whilst featuring in the top three every year between.

He is ranked among the best number 9s in the competition and has captained England Knights in previous seasons.

The hooker has also been nominated for the Super League Player of the Month award twice in 2016, and won the prize for August after his incredible try saving tackle on Ben Currie on Wembley.
