Hull FC Explore New Signing Option With Enquiry Made For…..

Published

Hull FC is presently investigating the potential of both loan deals and new permanent acquisitions as part of its active transfer market strategy. Head coach Tony Smith has made no secret of it, and with Tex Hoy’s anticipated departure, they will have more room to sign players.

Hoy was informed on Monday that he is surplus to requirements, as exclusively disclosed by Hull Live. Talks about his severance package are still in progress. Hull will now have a quota place to deal with following the Australian’s departure, which the club is presently evaluating their options to fill, according to a report from the Yorkshire Post this Tuesday afternoon.

Those spots could also be plural with the understanding that more players could leave the club over the next week, with Hull looking for answers as they address their torrid start to the season, which currently sees them sitting in 11th spot on the Super League table and out of the Challenge Cup having lost seven of their opening eight games. They have leaked 302 points in the process including 194 in their last four games

That has raised alarms. Last month, Smith hinted that Hull may look again at the loan market, where Warrington Wolves’ Joe Bullock and Matty Russell were brought in for rounds three and four. It is understood that a back-rower has been identified on this front, and a half-back is also of primary interest overseas.

Hull Live understands that the back-rower is St Helens junior Sam Royle. The club inquired last week about his availability, but an agreement is yet to be reached, with the Saints in cup action this week before hosting the Black and Whites next week. That means a deal right now makes little sense from their point of view, but it is something that has not been ruled out for the future.

With no first-team match this week, Hull is expected to be quite busy on these fronts. Royle, who played 27 times for the Saints and had a loan spell at Hull KR back in 2022, is not the only player on the team’s radar on either side of the globe. On Friday, April 19, they will play St Helens, and on Sunday, April 28, they will host Leeds Rhinos.
