“Fuming” Marc Sneyd seemingly refuses to speak to Sky Sports after Wigan Warriors defeat

Salford Red Devils' Brodie Croft and Marc Sneyd celebrate.

According to Sky Sports pundit Jon Wilkin, Marc Sneyd was “fuming” after an error against Wigan Warriors.

Sneyd kicked the ball short against the Wigan Warriors with his Salford Red Devils side only leading 12-10 with minutes to go.

His short kick-off was dropped by his teammates allowing Jake Wardle to snap up the ball and give the win to Wigan Warriors.

After the game, Marc Sneyd was crowned Man of the Match but was inconsolable after the game and according to Brain Carney.

He said: “The Betfred Player of the Match was Marc Sneyd. Now we’re trying to get Marc Sneyd, we believe he  doesn’t want to talk. We are trying to get him.” This was meaning Sky Sports in the usual post-match interview.

When Sneyd was highlighted on camera by Sky, Carney said: “There he is Marc Sneyd, he may be trying to avoid our microphones. We will keep trying to drag him here, he was so influential in that performance.”

Unsurprisingly, Sneyd never appeared to speak to Sky which is understandable given the emotional toll losing in such a manner.

After the game, the Sky Sports pundits were full of praise for Sneyd who was rightly the Man of the Match against the Wigan Warriors.

Sam Tomkins said: “He’s the heart beat of all the attack for Salford. It is his kicking game, which is  something that we’ve spoke about a lot today. We’ll speak about it a lot more this year because it just puts teams under pressure whether it’s a low kick, it’s still putting them under pressure. If it’s a high kick like they got for the try, it’s still effective.

“It’s goal kicking everywhere. His choice of kick, at the right times is so important.”

This came as Jon Wilkin said Sneyd isn’t an athlete but rather a player who is brilliantly at controlling a game with skill and smarts like we saw in the game against Wigan Warriors.

“I can imagine him right in in a pair of cycling shorts on you know, asking ‘do I have to go in there coach?’ just with a coffee.

“When it comes to executing plays, manipulating defences, kicking the ball and high rate of involvement dominating again well that’s his that’s his shtick isn’t it?”

Brian Carney added: “It is and today he’s become Salford’s record point scorer in Super League.”
