Marc Sneyd (born 9 February 1991) is a professional rugby league footballer who plays as a scrum-half for Hull F.C. in the Betfred Super League. [4]

Contents

He previously played for the Salford Red Devils, and spent a season on loan from Salford at the Castleford Tigers (Heritage № 942) in the Super League. He played as a stand-off and fullback earlier in his career.

Background

Sneyd was born in Oldham, Greater Manchester, England, and grew up in Shaw. [5]

Club career

Salford

He came through the junior ranks at Salford Red Devils. [6] He made his début for Salford in 2010 but his game time was limited. [7] In May 2013, he signed a new two-year contract with Salford. [8]

Castleford Tigers

Sneyd joined Castleford Tigers on loan for the 2014 season. [9] Castleford coach Daryl Powell described him as "...a quality player with the added benefit of an outstanding left-foot kicking game.” [9] This was Sneyd's breakthrough season in which he scored 7 tries and kicked 117 goals in just 31 appearances, and appeared in the 2014 Challenge Cup Final defeat by the Leeds Rhinos at Wembley Stadium. [10] [11]

Hull FC

A transfer request in June 2014 was turned down by Salford, [12] but soon after, Sneyd signed a three-year contract with Hull F.C. [7] [13] Hull coach Lee Radford said he "...has a superb left-foot kicking game and a fantastic touch on the ball, which we think will give him the opportunity to blossom into a really good young British half-back." [7]

In 2016, Sneyd kicked 130 goals and became the league's top goal-kicker. He won the 2016 Challenge Cup with Hull against the Warrington Wolves, kicking two goals in the narrow 12-10 win at Wembley Stadium; Sneyd was made man-of-the-match and won the prestigious Lance Todd Trophy. [14] [15]

In February 2017, he extended his contract with Hull until 2019. [16] He won the 2017 Challenge Cup with Hull in an 18-14 victory over the record holders Wigan Warriors, [17] and once again he was named the Lance Todd Trophy winner becoming only the second player to win the award two years in a row. [18] [19]

In April 2021, Sneyd overtook Michael Dobson in 9th position for the most conversions and penalty goals in Super League history.

International Career

In October 2013, he was named in the Ireland squad for the 2013 Rugby League World Cup. [21] However, despite being eligible through lineage, he was ruled ineligible after failing to complete the paperwork in time to register for the 2013 tournament. [22]
