Marc Sneyd’s departure from Hull FC was confirmed back in November 2021, but the effects were long-lasting
The mercurial halfback will be playing for hometown club Salford Red Devils in 2022 after moving back to where it all started.
But, it can’t be forgotten just how essential Sneyd was for Hull over the seven seasons he was in East Yorkshire, registering over 1,200 points in over 150 games in the process.
Now, one of his former teammates – Jamie Shaul – has spoken out about just how good it was to play alongside the 30-year-old.
“He had the ball on a piece of string when he was kicking,” Shaul told the Rugby League Review podcast.
“Sneydy is one of those players who is laid back and not bothered – you can slag him off as much as you want but it goes over his head and he thrives on those big games.
“And, he wants to be involved in those big game moments and comes up trumps every time.
“I would pick him if I was choosing one person to kick a drop goal or a goal from the sideline – he’s not fazed by anything.”
Shaul himself battled back from a devastating ACL injury towards the back end of the 2021 Super League season, but he is expected to be Hull’s number one choice for fullback at the beginning of the year following Jake Connor’s broken hand.
