Hull FC star crowned player of the month

Hull FC star Tex Hoy has been crowned Player of the Month for the first month of the season as revealed on Sky Sports News.

“It is an award that comes from hard work. It goes out to all my teammates at Hull FC, I can’t get this award or play the way I want to without them so it is very humbling to get this award,” he said on Sky Sports.

“Anyone of them could of got this award.”

He went on to reflect on the start of the season: “The Round One game, my debut game, it was crazy and to get the win was special and it was good to get the win.

“That was a good start but we let Castleford Tigers back into it, it was a big win over Leeds Rhinos but on Friday it was a long trip to Catalans and they were better than us in all areas.

“It is only three games but we need to build on that.”

He also spoke about his expectations about Super League having joined from Newcastle Knights in the NRL:

“I started watching it midway through last year, it is a very fast and physical game and my lungs were certainly hurting in those first few games but we will get better and all my expectations were there with it.”

He wins the award despite not topping the Man of Steel rankings.

Incredibly one player has achieved that maximum tally of nine points and it’s probably not who you’d expect, in fact it’s a player who hasn’t even won al three of their games.

Jordan Abdull tops the table after being granted the maximum marks in each game meaning he sits with nine points ahead of Warrington playmaker George Williams who has six.

Both Abdull and Williams received three points for their efforts this past week although it was Williams who helped guide his side to victory, Abdull’s Hull KR slipping to a last minute defeat to Leigh Leopards.

Alongside Abdull and Williams it was Aidan Sezer, Adam Keighran, Joe Greenwood and Liam Marshall who picked up maximum points in their respective fixtures.

Unfortunately for Abdull, and Hull KR, he won’t be able to extend his lead at the top of the charts as he has been ruled out of Friday’s clash with Warrington due to a calf injury.
