Three clubs that should sign Tex Hoy amidst exit rumours

Tex Hoy Hull FC

Hull FC’s Tex Hoy, according to reports on Monday, has been offered to other Super League clubs, amidst plenty of talk surrounding his place at the club.

The Australian, who is one-and-a-half years through a two-year deal, has shown flashes of brilliance in what has been a tough campaign for his team. He also shone early on in 2023, even claiming the Super League Player of the Month Award.

He was expected to make waves in Super League after signing from Newcastle Knights.

However, this hasn’t really been the case, and his time with the Black and Whites has been marred by controversy, such as arguing with fans online, and criticising head coach Tony Smith.

Now that he could be on his way out, here are three clubs that may be looking to sign him.

Castleford Tigers

It’s no secret that Castleford aren’t where they want to be this season.

Their fullback situation isn’t great. Luke Hooley is injured, and won’t return for another few weeks, while Jack Broadbent’s qualities could be used back in his native centre position – although he has looked good at fullback in recent weeks.

Equally, the situation in the halves hasn’t been good. Jacob Miller and Danny Richardson look devoid of options when attacking the opposition’s line, and Rowan Milnes has certainly failed to impress.

Castleford have no quota spots free, but players such as Albert Vete aren’t playing, and could be released to free the spot for Hoy.

He’s talented – it may be a risk, but for the Tigers, he could be the spark they need to kick-start their season, following a good win against Salford.

London Broncos

Logistically, this makes the most sense.

The Broncos have cap space and injured quota players that could be de-registered, meaning that there is nothing stopping the league’s bottom side from making a move for him.

He may not want to join a side destined for the Championship, but a short-term move, until the end of the season, could make sense, as he could use the time to show Super League clubs what he’s worth.

You could, however, suggest that London could do with focusing on their defensive woes rather than bringing a creative player in.

Alex Walker at fullback is far from their biggest problem, with some impressive performances this year, and Oli Leyland has shown that he brings a lot to the side.

Toulouse Olympique

If he fancies playing it slightly differently, Tex Hoy could find himself at a side like Toulouse this year.

Opposite to the Broncos, they’re in the Championship, but look destined for the Super League in 2025.

They’ve got cash, plenty of ambition and the allure of potentially playing Super League rugby in the South of France next season.
