Hull-born prop Scott Taylor joined his boyhood club Hull FC ahead of the 2016 season.
Having come up through the academy system of local rivals Hull Kingston Rovers, and went on to represent the Robins over 50 times.
He made his senior debut in 2009 aged just 18 and his impressive performances for Rovers earned him a call-up to the England Knights squad.
Further international recognition came in 2012 when Taylor was chosen by Steve McNamara for the England squad to face the Exiles.
Wigan Warriors came in for the prop and paid a “substantial fee” for his services in the 2013 season. Taylor played an integral part for the Cherry and Whites as they went on to win the double in his first year at the club.
He came off the bench in their Super League Grand Final victory over Warrington Wolves and also featured in the Challenge Cup final, where they overcame Hull FC at Wembley.
Taylor helped the Warriors reach another Grand Final in 2014 before spending the final year of his contract on loan at Salford Red Devils.
An old-school hard-working front-rower, Taylor is one of Super League’s most established and consistent forwards.
Taylor played his amateur rugby league for Skirlaugh Bulls and is now the head coach for local community side Beverley ARLFC alongside his professional duties for Hull FC.
In May 2016, Taylor was named the Super League Player of the Month, and was one of the six FC players in the 2016 Super League Dream Team, before ending an incredible season with England selection in the 2016 Four Nations.
