Marc Sneyd set to break into Super League all-time top 10 goalkickers

Hull’s Marc Sneyd needs three goals to break in to the top 10 in the list of Super League’s all-time leading goalkickers.

Sneyd, 29, has racked up 637 goals, including conversions and penalties, and will draw level with Iestyn Harris (640) in tenth place with three more.

Leeds legend Kevin Sinfield is top of the list, with an incredible 1,566 successful goals, which puts him almost 500 ahead of second-placed Danny Brough (1,084), who leaves Super League to join Bradford at the end of the season.

Brough is the last active player in Super League in the top 10, which also includes Sean Long, Lee Briers and Andy Farrell.

Leeds Rhinos’ Iestyn Harris (2nd left) breaks away from Wigan Warriors’ defence, during their Tetley’s Bitter Super League rugby league match at Headingley, in Leeds.

Super League leading all-time goalkickers

  • Kevin Sinfield 1,566
  • Danny Brough 1,084
  • Paul Deacon 1,043
  • Andy Farrell 1,026
  • Danny Tickle 928
  • Pat Richards 828
  • Sean Long 826
  • Lee Briers 821
  • Michael Dobson 669
  • Iestyn Harris 640
  • Marc Sneyd 637

Sneyd may have to wait for his chance to catch Harris, as even though Hull take on one of the Welshman’s former clubs, Leeds, at Headingley tonight (Thursday), he has been sidelined through injury.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield winger Jermaine McGillvary needs just one try to equal Luke Dorn in eighth place in the all-time try scorers table.

McGillvary, 32, has scored all of his 169 Super League tries for the Giants.

The try scorer’s list is headed by Danny McGuire (247), and with Ryan Atkins (186) departing Wakefield for York and Ryan Hall still in the NRL with Sydney Roosters, that leaves just Josh Charnley as the only other active player in the top 10.
