Sky Sports pundit identifies Super League player who will be a “star”

Hull FC nearly produced the shock Super League result of the weekend, as they pushed Sam Burgess’ Warrington Wolves side close, before ultimately falling short, succumbing to a 24-18 defeat in the sunshine at the MKM Stadium.

Hull came into the game hopeful of causing an upset. Last weekend, they registered just their second win of the season, beating the Leeds Rhinos 18-10 in a much improved performance. This confidence-boosting win, combined with a run of three straight defeats, meant that FC fancied their chances of picking up a big Super League scalp.

Warrington pinched the win in the last minute, through a late Matt Dufty try. Dufty reacted fastest to a charged George Williams drop-goal to scythe through the broken Hull defence to score the match-winning try and secure two vital points to keep Warrington in touch with Super League’s top two.

But one of Hull’s young stars caught the eye of Sky Sports pundit, Jon Wells, who believes the FC youngster has a big future in the game.

Hull’s young full-back, Logan Moy, has been one of the shining lights of a difficult season for the Black and Whites. The 19-year-old has been thrust into the FC first-team squad in a year of turmoil and has impressed with his quick feet at the back.

Having made his debut this season, Moy now has made eight appearances for FC, scoring his first Super League try in Hull’s game against the Huddersfield Giants in May.

Sky Sports pundit, Jon Wells singled Moy out for praise after the game. Although Wells was critical of Moy’s decision-making during the game at times, he believes he has a huge future in Super League.

“I think, notwithstanding the result, as an independent and neutral, I was most pleased to see and it was Logan Moy, who if I was being critical, had missed a couple of opportunities earlier in the game.

Well, I’ll tell you what, he will learn and he will develop and he’ll be a star in Super League in the future. I have no doubt, because these were the hands that we needed and it was a brilliant score converted from the sideline, from Ben Reynolds, which set us up for a grandstand finish.”

However, defeat leaves Hull still struggling to break away from the bottom of the Super League season. They remain on four points from their first 15 games, just two points clear of the league’s bottom side, London Broncos.

Hull FC travel to the Salford Red Devils after next week’s international break, before welcoming cross city rivals, Hull KR, to the MKM Stadium on the 13th of July.
