Super League star suffers wrath of fans after controversial gesture

Super League Round Three was the weekend of players gesturing to rival fans it seemed.

Leigh Leopards started it in the most controversial Super League clash in Round Three. John Asiata was sin binned after 41 seconds for a tackle similar to the ones that have turned him into public enemy number one since last year’s Challenge Cup semi-final.

As he left the field, he gestured to the St Helens fans to bring it on. Next it was Salford Red Devils star Marc Sneyd who was saluting the Hull KR fans when he nailed conversions.

After the game he was seemingly hit with some beer as he interviewed with Sky Sports. Lastly, Oli Leyland gestured to Hull FC fans after he put London Broncos in the lead. But the Black and Whites had the last laugh with a winning try.

Super League star reflects on important win

One of those players, Marc Sneyd, spoke after his side’s win over Hull KR. Speaking to the club’s YouTube channel, Sneyd highlighted the importance of downing a side that have become a bit of a bogey team recently.

“It’s always one I look out for anyway from playing at Hull (FC) and having that rivalry, so for them to be that bogey team was really irritating – to get that win over them so early in the season is massive,” he said.

“We’re just looking forward to next week now, try and get as much of a roll on as we can.”

On his own personal form, Sneyd was his usual humble self when asked whether he feels like everything he touches turns to golden at the moment.

“Maybe a little bit, yeah, if you want to say so!” he laughed.

“I’m just turning up each week and trying to do the best I can for the team, so if them things are coming off at the moment I’ll try and ride that wave as much as I possibly can, and hopefully it continues.”

The Red Devils are now one of six teams on four points after two wins from the opening three games in Super League.
