Marc Sneyd a big fan of golden point in Super League

Drew Darbyshire

Hull FC half-back Marc Sneyd is a keen admirer of the golden point concept in Super League.

The 29-year-old made history by scoring the first golden point drop goal in Hull’s win at Wigan last February and he repeated the same feat against Catalans two months later.

Sneyd was on the money again last week as he sealed a 27-26 win for his side at Wakefield.

He said: “I do like it and not just for my benefit.

“When it comes around to watching on telly, it adds another 10 minutes of excitement to a game of rugby.

“A nail-biter for the fans is real good entertainment.”

Hull host Warrington in round seven of Super League on Thursday night, and Sneyd hopes his side can gain some consistency in their game.

He added: “”We are probably two teams that are similar in the way we’ve started the year – hopefully we can kick on better than them.

“Probably no-one expected them to have the start they have had but, with the squad they’ve got, they are going to spike up at some point and we’ve got to be wary of that.

“Last week was a massive confidence booster for us. It was a must-win game for us and, although we struggled in the second half, at the end of the day we found a way to get the two points.”
