Heading over to the East and into Humberside, surprise package Hull FC recorded their most successful season to date.
The Airlie Birds have been classed as pretenders for many years now as they have always finished outside the top four since 2007.
That was about to change as they finished top of the regular season as well as most notably finally lifting the Challenge Cup at Wembley.
They ended what seemed like a non-stop hoodoo and were good money for a treble of trophies.
But they unfortunately flopped after their Wembley win and crashed out in the Super League Semi-finals to eventual champions Wigan Warriors.
They still have many positives to take out of a fantastic season as they look to resurrect their glory days.
Most Memorable Result
In all competitions, a very easy choice in their 12-10 win at Wembley against Warrington, but in the league, it has to be their record breaking 22-20 win at Hull Kingston Rovers.
The Black and Whites were stuttering in the season early on and after being 20-0 down with 20 minutes remaining, this form looked all set to continue.
However, Lee Radford’s side had other ideas and tries through hot prospect Jamie Shaul, Man of Steel Danny Houghton, star signing Mahe Fonua and the favoured Steve Michaels score tries to help steal the points.
This result helped change their season as it added further fuel to the fire following their controversial players meeting after the Widnes match.
Hull were desperate to avoid underachieving once again and were certainly performing that way in this derby.
They shrugged this off and completed the greatest Hull derby comeback in Super League history and backed this up with a further two derby wins to complete a series whitewash.
Most Forgettable Result
Hull had many to remember but also had a few they would rather forget.
They may slipped up in the final round to Warrington in the League Leaders Shield clash but the worst one overall had to be their 46-6 defeat away at Widnes Vikings.
The result may have helped transform the Airlie Birds into contenders but it was a result that stunned the rugby league world by how easy Widnes had it.
Credit to the Vikings on the night, they played some sensational rugby and completely flattened Hull with nine tries after Frank Pritchard scored early on.
Stefan Marsh starred with a hat-trick of tries, with Corey Thompson scoring two.
Joe Mellor, Rhys Hanbury, Kevin Brown and Matt Whitley completed the scoring in a night Hull fan certainly would love to forget.
Successful or Under-achievers?
Well as aforementioned, Hull have been classed as the serial under-achievers of Super League, especially in the previous decade.
This season saw them become a striking force once again as they lifted the Challenge Cup at Wembley and were dominant throughout 2016.
Impressive records include being the only club to secure away wins against all of their eventual Super 8s opposition.
Furthermore, they had six players in Jamie Shaul, Mahe Fonua, Gareth Ellis, Mark Minichiello, Scott Taylor and Danny Houghton, included in the Dream Team.
Houghton even went on to secure the Man of Steel Award, the first time ever achieved by a Hull player.
But despite these feats, only Taylor will be featured for England in the Four Nations Tournament.
Regardless, Hull have plenty to be happy about in what has been a historic season.
So without a doubt, they have been successful as a whole.
Maybe a hint of under-achieving in there as they maintained their dominant squad throughout the season, but could only lift one piece of silverware.
They should return even better in 2017 as they aim to go better and maybe attain the treble.
