Marc Sneyd makes Hull FC admission ahead of milestone Super League game

Former Hull FC half-back Marc Sneyd didn’t even realise his treble ton was looming - but he is certain he wants more. The current Salford Red Devils star will rack up his 300th Super League appearance this Sunday afternoon.

Fittingly, it’s against former club Hull, where he notched up 161 of those games and two Challenge Cup final wins. But Sneyd, who continues inspiring resurgent Red Devils, admitted: “I had no idea. It’s the first time I've heard of it.

“Strangely, my missus asked me this week how many Super League games I’d played. That was weird because I’d not heard anything about this or knew the answer. But I can tell her tonight!”

Sneyd turns 34 in February but, given his brilliant form, is far from contemplating retirement and is confident he can push well onto the 350 mark.

He said: “It’s obviously in the back of my mind but the way I’m thinking is I’m playing well and my body is still not giving up on me. I don’t think I’m slowing down at all. I’ll make the decision later.

“But for the time being, I have no plans whatsoever to hang my boots up. And I’ve a couple more years here at Salford.”

Struggling Hull only have two wins all year but Sneyd, who’s clocked up 112 Super League games for Salford after 26 at Castleford, insisted: “From where they were six weeks ago, they’re definitely progressing.

“They are really having a dig and pushing teams close. We won’t take it lightly as a win. We’ve definitely got to be up there.”
