Marc Sneyd is on course to be Hull FC ’s all-time points scorer after joining an elite list on Thursday night.
Sneyd’s five goals and a drop goal in the win against Castleford Tigers took the scrum-half into four figures for points scored, with the 28-year-old becoming only the 10th man in the history of the club to score over 1,000 points for the Black and Whites.
With 142 points scored in Super League already this season, made up of one try, six drop goals and 66 goals, if Sneyd can continue at the same rate he will easily pass Peter Bateson in ninth place this season.
Signed until the end of the 2022 season, if the player who is averaging over 200 points a season stays fit and healthy, Sneyd should pass everyone on the list before his contract runs out, with the only question being whether he catches the great Joe Oliver who is out on his own.
Oliver, who played when tries were worth just three points, amassed 1,842 during his 11 years with the club, spread across two spells.
Two-time Lance Todd Trophy winner Sneyd, needs 328 points to pass Danny Tickle to become FC’s all-time points scorer in the Super League era.
