Sneyd hit gives Hull gold rush
Catalans Dragons 30 Hull FC 31 (AET)
MARC SNEYD scored a golden-point winner for the second time this season as his drop goal edged Hull FC to a dramatic victory.
Hull secured their first win in Perpignan since February 2016 and looked to Sneyd to settle this after his 50-metre penalty had taken proceedings into overtime.
Just as he had done to secure the first golden-point win in Super League in the 23-22 defeat of Wigan in February, Sneyd stepped up once more.
He also kicked four conversions to add to Josh Griffin’s two tries and scores from Jack Brown, Connor Wynne and Bureta Faraimo.
Hull travelled minus six first-choice front rowers and 37-year-old Gareth Ellis was given a start.
Catalans had opened the scoring in the sixth minute with Sam Tomkins but Sneyd’s brilliance with the boot was the clincher.
