Hull FC prop Scott Taylor has revealed he’s delighted to be back in his hometown for 2016 – not least because it ends his nightmare with the M62.
Taylor was commuting from Hull to Salford for the last few weeks of his time with the Red Devils, going the length and breadth of the infamously bad motorway for training and for games.
But now he’s back in Hull and back with FC for 2016, and says he’s delighted to eliminate the annoying travel aspect of his career once again.
“During the last few weeks of the season there my partner was already back in Hull working full-time and I was travelling back and forth from Manchester,” Taylor told the Hull Daily Mail.
“As many fans will know by going to games regularly, the M62 is an absolute nightmare and I’m glad I don’t have to travel down there every single day like I was doing.”
Taylor believes he’s left Salford on the back of some impressive form, after winning their Player of the Year award at the end of last season.
“It wasn’t a great year for Salford, but for me it went well,” he said.
“On a personal note I just wanted to do everything I could on the field. It turns out I’ve been really lucky with injuries and I’ve played every game.
“It was good to be rewarded with the Player of the Year award. I wasn’t expecting it, but it was a nice feeling to be recognised for my hard work.”
