Mick Scott was regarded as the cornerstone of the famous Hull pack of the 1950s and 60s.
He started his career as a second-row forward but it was as a pile-driving prop that he will be long-remembered for.
Scott was the Black and Whites captain in the mid-50s before handing over the arm band to another legend, Johnny Whiteley.
His nerves of steel were demonstrated in the classic 1956 Championship Final against Halifax.
With Halifax leading 9-8, Hull received a penalty near the touch-line. Rather than take the easy option and opt to take a tap, Scott handed the ball to Colin Hutton for a shot at goal and Hutton fully justified his captain’s faith by kicking the goal to bring the title back to Hull for the first time in 20 years.
Scott also played a significant part in Hull’s victory in the ’58 Final over Workington, setting up Brian Cooper for a try and later stepping around Workington stand-off Harry Archer to score himself.
Scott and Whiteley played in the ten finals Hull were in from 1953 to 1960.
The Hull FC legend’s life was cut short tragically in an accident on the docks when he was only 37 years-old.
He was a very popular player with the Faithful and will long be remembered as one of Hull FC’s all-time greats, currently sitting second in the club’s all-time list of appearance-makers.
