Official Report / Commentary

A late Marc Sneyd drop-goal gave Hull FC a hard-fought 19-18 victory over Leeds Rhinos at the KCOM Stadium.

The Black and Whites opened their try-scoring account in the 13th minute through Jake Connor before Bureta Faraimo crossed for a second seven minutes before the break.

Connor went over for his second try of the night just a few minutes after the restart, with Sneyd adding the extras to extend their advantage.

But the Rhinos came roaring back and three converted tries in the space of 10 minutes - scored by Ryan Hall, Joel Moon and Matt Parcell - looked to have turned the game on its head.

However, Carlos Tuimavave set up a grandstand finish with his 71st-minute touchdown and the stage was set for Sneyd to land the winning blow.

Hull head coach Lee Radford said: "I’m really pleased and proud, We were never going to do it easy against them.

"There was always going to be a spell where they were red hot and we knew we’d have to push each other physically.

"They are a great side. It’s no coincidence we’ve not done well against them over 10 years.

"We identified the start and knew getting off to a good start was really important.

"Marc could have made it easier had he kicked his goals. But his composure and execution was superb, he’s done it so many times for us."
