Salford Red Devils’ Marc Sneyd backed to make it in the NRL

To make it in the NRL, it takes an incredible sportsman.

The likes of Sam Tomkins, Dan Sarginson, Kallum Watkins and Ryan Hall have all had mixed results when going Down Under whilst those such as Adrian Morley, John Bateman and Elliott Whitehead have excelled.

One new Super League recruit, however, has spoken about one particular player that could make it in the NRL.

Elijah Taylor moved to the Salford Red Devils ahead of the 2021 Super League season and was made captain by new boss Paul Rowley for 2022.

And, speaking on the Out Of Your League podcast, Taylor was convinced that maverick halfback Marc Sneyd would excel in the NRL.

“Sneydy is a good player,” Taylor told the podcast.

“He should have some time in the NRL because he’s got an awesome kicking game, I’ve never seen anything like that.

“He’s so smart, he does most of the talking in the game which takes a lot of pressure off me.”

Taylor also revealed that the play is a lot different in Super League than it was when he played in Australia.

“It’s totally different, it’s more attacking based whereas in the NRL it’s about completing sets.

“You can crab across the field and hit a hole, it’s so different to the way they think about the footy in the NRL.”
