Hull FC full-back decision explained as Logan Moy in driving seat once again

Logan Moy is set to keep hold of Hull FC's full-back spot at Salford Red Devils, with Simon Grix keen to reward the talented teenager for recent performances. Moy, who made his Super League debut back in April, has started Hull's last four games, showing his potential in a sequence of energetic accounts.

Scoring his first senior try at Huddersfield Giants six weeks ago, Moy has had an influence on Hull's attack in the last two games, coming up with a couple of assists as he finds his feet at this level. Elusive with the ball, he has also shown signs of his dangerous running game, while he has remained safe under the high bomb, playing with energy throughout.

And despite growing competition from Jack Walker and Davy Litten, it's Moy who will now keep his place as Hull head over the Pennines, with Grix set to ensure the right messages are sent out with the 18-year-old preparing for his eighth match at this level.

Speaking to Hull Live, Grix said: "It's a tough one with Moy, Litten, and Wakka all in there. Moy is playing really well in the first-team, Davy is going really well in the reserves, and Wakka has also played well in the reserves. It's all down to performance, essentially.

"The longer we leave Jack out of the picture, the harder it is for him to come in and play at a level he would want to play at, but at the same time, when Moy isn't doing anything wrong, and with the break we've had as well, it's a hard decision. We don't want Moy to have a bad game before we go, 'Right, you're out' but he's doing such a great job at the moment, it'd be hard for us to change it this week."

However, with a dozen games left of the 2024 season, Grix is insistent that a playing opportunity will come for Walker at some stage, with the same situation unfolding for Litten, who has made no secret of his desire to play full-back in an exclusive interview with Hull Live this week.

"Jack's still got plenty of opportunities this year as has Davy," Grix added. "He went really well for the reserves the other day. The opposition weren't great but he had a really good game.

"He's put his hand up saying he wants to be a full-back and I admire him for the challenge he's given himself there. There's a couple of good blokes playing there and playing more consistently, but we'll see how that plays out. It's nice to have choices in some positions, we don't have them in all, but there's certainly a nice little battle going on there."
