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.
