Hull FC fullback Tex Hoy could be set for a dramatic mid-season exit from the club, as Love Rugby League can reveal his services have been offered to Super League sides.

Hoy has featured in all-but one of Hull’s eight league and cup games this season, but could now be set to leave the MKM Stadium after it emerged he was offered a route out of the club with immediate club.

Love Rugby League has been told that clubs in the top-flight have been made aware that Hoy is available for a mid-season transfer, with his existing deal at Hull set to expire at the end of the current campaign.

Hoy signed a two-year deal with Hull at the start of last season, and has been a regular fixture in the Black and Whites side since his arrival at the beginning of 2023.

However, an early exit from that contract now appears inevitable. In terms of potential options, Hoy would be limited in Super League: with only two clubs as it stands having space on their overseas quota to accommodate Hoy.

One of those, Warrington Wolves, would almost immediately be ruled out given the form of Matt Dufty this season. The other option is newly-promoted London Broncos, who would offer Hoy regular rugby for the remainder of this season at the highest level and potentially giving him a chance to showcase himself to other clubs.

Hoy could also theoretically drop down to the Championship, with a number of clubs making no secret of their desire to spend big and compete in the division this year. But it remains to be seen whether Hoy would be willing to drop down out of Super League.

He could also return to Australia if a release is agreed with Hull FC – but one thing appears increasingly clear. No matter where Hoy goes next, he looks certain to have played his last game for the Black and Whites.
