Hull FC signing Tex Hoy wants future move despite Super League transfer

New Hull FC signing Tex Hoy has yet to land in the UK, but he is already thinking of returning to the NRL in a number of years.

Just 23 years of age, the Newcastle Knights playmaker has signed a two-year deal with the Black and Whites to link up with Brett Hodgson from 2023 onwards.

However, Hoy, like most NRL recruits would like to return to the Australian competition further down the line.

“Probably in the back of your mind (you think about that),” Hoy told the Canberra Times.

“I am only young. By the time two years are up, I’m 25 and that is when you start hitting your prime years.

“You never know what happens as well. Player moves might happen back here.

“But I am not really focused on that, I am focused on going to Hull and putting my best foot forward.”

Hoy is set to draw experience from his own assistant coach currently at the Knights, Blake Green, who spent four seasons in Super League having first moved to Hull KR and then the Wigan Warriors.

The former halfback then returned to the likes of the Melbourne Storm, becoming a real icon in the NRL.

“I spoke to Greeny just before it all came out, got his thoughts on it,” Hoy continued.

“He was the perfect example of that. He was 23 or 24, went over, won Man of Steel, came back, killed it over here.

“That is pretty much my main reason. I am going to get to play some footy over there every week.

“The other thing was just getting myself our of my comfort zone. I have grown up in Newcastle my whole life.”

Hoy is set to link up in the halves with Jake Trueman who is set to move from Castleford Tigers for the 2023 season.
