It was a tough 2016 for the rebounding defender, who missed 10 weeks with a serious wrist injury that required surgery.

One of the Tigers’ most important players at his best, Houli couldn’t rediscover his form of seasons past when fit and will be looking to bounce back in 2017.

Could be used further up the ground as more half-back options emerge.
