Marc Sneyd commits long-term future to Hull FC

Marc Sneyd has signed a three-year contract extension with Hull FC, keeping him at the club until the end of 2022.

The 28-year-old is a back-t0-back Challenge Cup winner with the Black and Whites, having won the Lance Todd Trophy at Wembley in both 2016 and 2017.

Sneyd, who has kicked two match winning drop-goals in golden point this season, has made 115 appearances for Hull since joining the club in 2015.

On his contract extension, Sneyd said: “It’s a massive weight off my shoulders and now I can fully concentrate on playing my rugby for Hull rather than worrying about my future.

“The rugby is going really well at the moment and my family is really settled here in Hull, so there was never any reason for us to move away.

“I am really looking forward to just cracking on in the next few years and hopefully we get the chance to win a few more trophies.

“I’m really happy at the club, it is a good place to be, it is a good setup and I think we are going places. The future looks very promising for us.”

FC coach Lee Radford commented: “When I took over as head coach of the club there were a lot of games that we lost by four or six points. Marc Sneyd’s goal-kicking ability means that we don’t find ourselves in that situation as often.

“I still think that Marc’s best years are ahead of him, despite the fact that he has already brought two Challenge Cup trophies home for us.

“He is the sort of player who steps up to the plate when the pressure is on. We want him to be rolling out in some more cup finals over the next three years.

“I’m really pleased to see Marc staying with the club and I’m sure the fans will be too.”
