Marc Sneyd opens up on “absolutely frightening” Leeds player

Marc Sneyd has become part of the furniture at Hull FC since making the move ahead of the 2015 season.

And, in what will be his 250th career game against Leeds this weekend, the halfback is keen to move on from last week’s poor result against Huddersfield.

“I think the way we performed, in general, wasn’t good enough,” Sneyd said.

“We’ve put quite a lot of emphasis on performance this year and not just the result, but the way we played the game – for the majority of it – was way off what we’ve done all season which was probably the most disappointing thing.

“We’ve done the review and put a few wrongs right so we’re set to go again now.”

Sneyd, however, knows Leeds have a number of strike threats that the Airlie Birds will have to look out for.

“They are playing some really good rugby and they look like they’ve gone back to the best Leeds team of old.

“They look like they’ve been given free reign and play more off the cuff rugby and it looks like it’s working at the moment.

“We need to lock the ball up and be wary of what they are going to throw at us.

“Matt Prior is more than happy to offload the ball when it looks for all certain that it’s not on.

“They’ve got a lot of players that come back against the grain, obviously Konrad Hurrell is absolutely frightening and as a team we’ve got to stick together in a line.”

Hardly the same as your headline suggests. It was a passing comment prob on his size and bulk. We managed him perfectly well last game. Hull wont ne frightened of him, hes a pussycat.
