I've always thought Tex is a playmaker and belongs in the halves. When he played under 16s he was our "go to" playmaker on the 5th tackle as a fullback, which was a bit funny to watch. He has the cool, calm decision making abilities of a playmaker, and he is also a quality athlete. We haven't seen a guy with those attributes come through our juniors since Mullo really. He still has a long way to go, but I hope he gets to spend an extended period at 5/8 and gets plenty of coaching from Dureau and Kostjasyn - and maybe his father's good friend, Andrew Johns, might give him a few tips. I can't remember where I read it, but I think I read years ago that Andrew Johns is his godfather. I know Tex is the son of professional surfer Matt Hoy, who used to hang out and surf with AJ back in the Merewether days.
