In a post via his personal Twitter account, Hull FC’s Tex Hoy has confirmed that his date for a return to action is indefinite, currently sidelined with a hamstring injury.

2023 recruit Hoy joined the Black and Whites ahead of this season on a two-year deal from NRL side Newcastle Knights. The club also have the option to extend by a further year should they wish to do so.

Able to play in the halves and at full-back, the versatile playmaker has had a stop-start first season at the MKM Stadium.

Missing the Good Friday derby against Hull KR with a hamstring issue, a recurrence of the same problem happened in the Round 18 meeting of the same teams at Craven Park and Hoy limped off the field.

Tex Hoy issues ‘indefinite’ injury update

Hoy’s Tweet came in the wake of FC’s Round 19 victory over Castleford Tigers, and was seemingly out of the blue.

It read, ‘Going to leave this here.

Hamstring is okay. Following a plan of action from the medical staff to get it healthy but at this stage I am taking it week by week.

My return to play is indefinite.’

Hull FC’s social media activity raise eyebrows

23-year-old Hoy is frequent with his posts on social media, so the latest perhaps won’t come as a surprise to Black and Whites fans.

He’s not the only one though. After the victory at Hull KR recently, in which Hoy was forced off, Jake Trueman tweeted out a picture of head coach Tony Smith as the king.

Playmaker Hoy retweeted that, along with sending out a separate tweet saying ‘Anyone got a spare hamstring?’

The Australian is no stranger to the tweet button, and it’s been something that has caused a stir amongst local press and FC supporters already this season.
