Hull FC star Scott Taylor has been awarded a huge honour in the shape of a testimonial from the RFL after spending time with four clubs in Super League.
Taylor was the match winner against Leeds Rhinos on Friday night as he took Brad Dwyer’s pass to cross for the winning try in a 22-18 win over the Rhinos.
Taylor is one of many players who look revitalised by the appointment of Tony Smith.
Now Taylor can look forward to a testimonial and he released the following statement:
“Having reached 300 career appearances last August, I’m truly honoured and delighted to have been awarded a twelve month testimonial by the RFL for services to the game at club and international level, starting on April 1st.
“I’d like to say a huge thank you to all my team mates, coaches and colleagues, both past and present, and right through from my amateur days with Skirlaugh, to my professional and international career – I will forever be grateful and indebted to them for their incredible support.
“Another big mention goes to the fans at the clubs I have proudly represented throughout my career; Hull KR, Wigan, Salford, and of course, my beloved Hull FC their support over the past 14 years has been amazing. A special mention goes to my current club – playing for my hometown club and the team I’ve supported all my life means the world to me, and the support of the Black & White Army over the past seven years has been immense.
“Finally, I’d like to pay tribute to my family, friends, and my rock, Abby. None of this would have happened without all of their sacrifices to help me live my dream. I can’t wait to create some rugby memories in my testimonial with my first-born son, Preston.”
