“No one cares” – Super League star says Challenge Cup tie was “awful” to play in

We were treated to some amazing Challenge Cup ties over the weekend including a 14-try game split seven tries a piece.

In the end it was the flawless kicking game of Marc Sneyd that was the difference for Salford Red Devils as they defeated Huddersfield Giants 42-40 to book a place in the quarter-finals and take on Hull KR.

Speaking after the game Man of the Match Sneyd said it was an awful game to play in but was likely amazing to watch.

He also said that the manner of the result doesn’t matter. In a do or die clash, it is the result that counts.

“That was probably good to watch for the fans but for a player it was awful,” he said on Viaplay.

“It was really nervy and we didn’t play as well as we wanted to.

“But it’s a cup game and we’re through to the next round so no one cares.”

He assessed why the Red Devils threw away two substantial leads in the game as well:

“We probably started both halves pretty much like we wanted to but maybe we spoke too much about being good for the first 20 minutes because we let it go after that.”

Meanwhile, he also underlined the club’s determination to win a trophy:

“The club have been on the up in recent years and have gotten to finals but not got their hands on silverware yet but that’s what we want to do.

“We know when we’re on we’re really good.

“We can control what we want to do in this competition.”
