Star Super League signing reveals key reason behind move

Hull FC have released another episode of their pre-season series ‘Hull FC: Reloaded’ which documents the squad’s training and what Tony Smith’s men are doing to prepare for the upcoming season.

In the latest episode we get to hear from new star signing from the NRL, Tex Hoy, who reveals what life is like in cold Humberside.

The team shared the video to their Twitter with fitness clearly being something that is being worked on as players trekked up and down hills to aid their stamina.

“It’s been a different change, but a good change for me personally. There’s stuff I’m not used to here, different facilities and turf is a big one for me but I’m excited for the change and there’s a reason why I came here and that’s to get out my comfort zone and experience new things.

“Getting to know the players and learning the boys and how they react and train is another thing but once I get used to my surroundings I’ll be flying.”

Hoy joins from Newcastle Knights where the 23-year-old made an impression, so much so that the Black and Whites have recruited him and he’ll assume the role previously occupied by Jake Connor.

Tony Smith has built a solid squad at FC and will look to better his 2020 season with cross-city rivals Hull KR where he took them all the way to the play-off semi-finals.

Smith brings plenty of experience and will hope to reinvigorate a Hull FC side that has missed out on the play-offs for the past two season.

The addition of Hoy as a young playmaker provides the Airlie Birds with plenty of pace and technical ability across the backline where Adam Swift and Darnell McIntosh will occupy the wings, whilst the addition of Leeds Rhinos’ centre Liam Sutcliffe also aids their ability to score.
