Hull FC fans should be very excited about new signing as Brett Hodgson rejuvenates Super League squad

Hull FC are in a bit of a rut at present, let’s face it.

In Friday’s game against Wakefield Trinity – a fixture that the Black and Whites lost 26-18 – Sky Sports put up a relevant statistic about the way in which Hull tail off towards the back end of a season.

The idea that Hull start well and finish badly rang true with just one win from their final 11 games in 2021, but why is this?

Head coach Brett Hodgson needs to put his finger on why that is before it gets too late, though it does appear as though the Super League play-offs are now out of reach – something which the former fullback did basically admit in his post-match interview.

Going into 2023, however, there is reason to be optimistic if you are a Hull fan.

Not only is Jake Connor staying at the club – something which may have seemed unlikely earlier in the season – but there are three great new signings heading through the door at the MKM Stadium.

One of those is Newcastle Knights livewire Tex Hoy, whilst Castleford Tigers’ Jake Trueman and Leeds Rhinos’ Liam Sutcliffe will also be joining Hodgson’s rejuvenation in 2023.

Whilst Hull fans are familiar with Trueman and Sutcliffe, Hoy is a bit of an enigma at present, but it is an enigma which Hull fans should be excited about.

Just 23 years of age, Hoy is upping sticks and moving halfway across the world to get a shot in Super League – and he will definitely take the chance with both hands.

Able to play at fullback, halfback or even hooker, the Newcastle man adds a utility value that could be the difference between winning and losing games in 2023.

And, with pace to burn and lightning-quick reflexes, Hoy’s game suits Super League to a tee – much like Matt Dufty at Warrington Wolves.

Though 2022 has been a bit of a write-off for Hull, Hoy’s presence in 2023 will surely lift the Black and Whites out of that hole.
